To the ends of this lost world
You have marched and you have sworn
To a tainted crown of thorns

As the hungry sails unfurl
We are thrusted from the shore
And it's you that we search for

The blackest night
The midnight sun
The covered tracks
The day spent on the run
The strangers we've become...

These whereabouts unknown
Please know you can come home
It's alright
I long for the moment
Our silence is broken
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright

Another place, another time
We toed the same side of the line
Yeah we saw eye to eye

Even then the saddest sounds,
We're nothing laughter could not drown
But we are not laughing now

I see your face
In my sights
I hesitate
And then look for a sign
Somewhere in the sky...

These whereabouts unknown
Please know you can come home
It's alright
I long for the moment
Our silence is broken
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright

Even together, we stand apart
Swallow the sun, erase the sky
An invitation has been declined
Where did you go
Where did you go

The whereabouts unknown
Please know you can come home
It's alright
I long for the moment
Our silence is broken
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright
It's alright now
It's alright yea
All is forgiven
If you could just listen...
It's alright
