lyrics

Long are the days of aimless wanderer
Searching for home in the green
But longer, the days of the ones who squander
Years in a life of routine

Stay in the light of the forest, sister
Free from the greed in the wire
Nothing can come of a droning system
All that you need is the fire

Take to the land like the rushing water
Fight for your life like a lion
Retell the tale of the lowly daughter
Lost in the place where she bides

Treasure the scars that the woodlands gave you
Make them a sign of your might
The cold in the wind and the rain may scald you
But freedom it comes at a price

But along came alone
With the fear that where you're going may be wrong
While all across the oceans
To these dreams, these gleaming notions we belong

They say that the time is the greatest fodder
Wait, and you'll find your design
But given the chance we would all work harder
Finding the place where we shine

Remember the words that the wiseman told you
Water that moves remains clean
The lake will be black in its stagnance soon
So better to drink from the stream

There's beauty in longing and desperation
It means that you've not given up
So focus the fervor of your frustration
Use it to fly, not to drop

Look to the ground when you feel unmoved
The earth where you stand is untried
Shine as you howl at the rising moon
The point is to live, not survive

But along came alone
With the fear that where you're going may be wrong
While all across the oceans
To these dreams, these gleaming notions
On an ordinary day they'll come alive
Come alive
Come alive
Come alive
Oh, let me hear you howl
Lift your anchor off the ground
The time to live is now

Open your eyes, life is all around
You don't have to be so alone
Take a good look at this world you've found
And breathe now, you're finally home
