  • Finally, I'm crossing the threshold
    From the ordinary world
    To the reveal of my heart
    Undoubtedly, that will for certain
    Take the dead out of the sea
    And the darkness from the arts

    This is my commitment (ah)
    My modern manifesto (ah)
    I'm doing it for all of us (ah)
    Who never got the chance
    For a handful
    And all my birds of paradise
    Who never got to fly at night
    'Cause they were caught up in the dens

    Sometimes it feels like I've got a war in my mind
    I want to get off but I keep riding the ride
    I never really notice that I had to decide
    To play someone's game or to live my own life and now I do
    I want to move
    Out of the black (out of the black)
    Into to the blue (into the blue)

    Finally
    Gone is the burden
    Of the crawling way of being
    That comes from energies combined
    Like my part was I
    Was not discerning
    And knew as we found out
    We're not in your right mind

    There's no more chasing rainbows (ah)
    And hoping for an end to them (ah)
    Their arches are illusions (ah)
    Solid at first glance
    But then you try to touch them
    There's nothing to hold on to
    The colors used to lure you in
    And put you in a trance
    (Yeah)

    Sometimes it feels like I've got a war in my mind
    I want to get off but I keep riding the ride
    I never really notice that I had to decide
    To play someone's game or to live my own life and now I do
    I want to move
    Out of the black (out of the black)
    Into the blue (into the blue)
    Out of the black (out of the black)
    Into the blue (into the blue)
    Out of the black (out of the black)
    Into the blue (into the blue) Writer/s: ELIZABETH GRANT, KIERON MENZIES, RICK NOWELS
