lyrics

The man who fell to earth
fell to a lonely place
a conquered abandoned west
for a lonely man from space

He could have most anything
But freedom or home
Icarus’ cry
Cares nothing for your view of the sky

Oh, you’ve so far to go
Years in this guise
And no way
to let them know
You’re still alive
And no way to say
to them you’re okay

So let’s settle down
in a house by a lake
while we wait for the day
we don’t have to pretend

And while she ponders God
I’ll watch tv
And try to remember
A time when water
Was worth more than
The right view of the sky

Oh, you’ve so far to go
Years in this guise
And no way
to let them know
You’re alive
And no way to say
to them you’re okay
