lyrics

I seen something o'er the gate
I seen a crow, or the gate?
Or a man with whiskers like horns
Gettin' high on his pale rockin' horse

I seen something o'er the gate
Flyin' like those dandelion wishes that I make
And I wish I was a thousand miles from home
Yeah, I wish I was a thousand miles from home

I can see such distant lands
An underwater school
Where some odd fish
Is learning how to up and leave the pool

Endless dreams and trackless hallows
Don't think just listen and follow

I seen something o'er the gate
Flyin' like those dandelion wishes that I make
And I wish I was a thousand miles from home
Yeah, I wish I was a thousand miles from home

I know there's something more to find
I'll not stay here too long
I've carried with me all their lies
Kept safe behind my tongue

And they told me chew and swallow
Don't think just listen and follow

I seen something o'er the gate
Flyin' like those dandelion wishes that I make
And I wish I was a thousand miles from home
Yeah, I wish I was a thousand miles from home

I can see them names and faces clear enough
But as I close my eyes, they oxidize
And crumble into dust
