I Can Never Go Home



The voyage begins well and with high hopes but Our Hero quickly finds himself disassociating from at first the crew and eventually himself




I look around this painted cell

and I come undone

IÕm sure youÕre the one


Ten thousand feet beneath the ground

thereÕs another sun

brighter than the ones in space

and rotating Ôround itÕs face


Every second now

IÕm more by myself

Now I can see through


WeÕre liquid in skin

Now IÕm sure what this is


Well IÕm better now

and itÕs obvious

I can never go home

But I know

I know
