lyrics

I hear the sound of drums
Of a hundred distant guns
A silence at the horizon
Draws in the setting sun
And it pulls me under

It's not a wonder if I leave
It's a wonder I was ever here at all

Out past the breaking waves
Beyond our endless days
A silence at the horizon
Draws in the sun again
And it pulls me under

It's not a wonder if I leave
It's a wonder I was ever here at all
