  • That distant blue, that's me and you
    It was from there that we all grew
    Framed in space, our first home
    All those beating hearts that were made of stone
    We were disaster built from flesh and bone

    Their bodies made a mountain, a ladder to the stars
    When they reached up to the sun, it only left them with scars
    All the saints and the sinners will reap what they sow
    So they stood back and watched their bitterness grow

    They couldn't tell the cure from disease
    They no longer knew their want from their need
    They fucked the future, forgot the past
    Nothing built was built to last

    A common ground, now we see
    That connected us like the land and the sea

    That distant blue, that's me and you
    It was from there that we all grew
    Framed in space, our first home
    All those beating hearts that were made of stone
    We were disaster built from flesh and bone

    Caught in a web, don't struggle free
    This is all we've got, so just let it be
    If we save ourselves, we'll feel so small
    We'll ask ourselves why we cared at all

    Caught in a web, don't struggle free
    This is all we've got, so just let it be
    If we save ourselves, we'll feel so small
    Ask ourselves why we cared at all
    Why we cared at all Writer/s: ALEX ANTHONY DEAN, DANIEL JOSEPH SEARLE, SAMUEL DAVID CARTER, THOMAS DUNCAN SEARLE
