You could travel for a lifetime
And still stay where you are
You could wait until the right time
Resolve to make or mar
People tell you what they know
They're mostly wrong from the word go

It's under the surface and it's up in the sky
That's why you won't reach it, so don't even try

The lines are old yet still not weakened
You don't know what to do
'Cause everyone else around is sleeping
The choice is up to you
Now you better watch out what you're saying
These words could cut like swords
You better watch out while you're praying
Find out what you're praying for
People tell you what they know
They're mostly wrong from the word go

'Cause it's under the surface and it's up in the sky
That's why you won't reach it, so don't even try

It's so unexpected, now how could it be true
I never would detect it if it hadn't been for you
Now I got this notion and it's bottled up inside
A swamp of emotions there's no need to hide

It's under the surface and it's up in the sky
That's why you won't reach it, so don't even try
