From the corner of my eye
I was looking out and why
To see all the things we did
To see hope in where we hid

From the outside looking in
Was a stranger with a grin
Seeing bombhead on a rope
He was swinging high and low
high and low

Chorus
We were miles out to sea
Did we float you and me
Maybe one day we'll go back for more
We were miles From the bay
Did we float I should say
Maybe next time we'll leave from the shore
From the corner of my eye
I was looking out and why
There were sounds you never heard
Anfd then dump was the new word

Look at last night was that night
A sharp lady got it right
We sang songs from cabaret
And we laughed the night away
right away

Chorus
The mad monk was such a sight
Red hair hanging in the light
And a temple to call home
Is he living there alone

From the outside looking in
Was a stranger with a grin
He saw all the things we did
We saw hope in where we hid
Yes we did
Chorus
