COMPASS I’M WORKING OUT THE CLUES TO THIS BIG STORY STOPPING CONSTANTLY AND LOOKING ROUND TO FIND THEM AT FIRST IT WAS ALL DIM AND FUZZY FEELING STRETCHING OUT MY ARMS TO STOP MYSELF FROM FALLING. NOW WHAT WAS THAT YOU SAID TO ME ABOUT IT? I COUDN’T HEAR, I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT YOU WERE SAYING. AND THOUGH THERE WAS NO WAY AND NO DIRECTION I JUST HOPED I’D FIND A CLEARER WAY TO SEE IT. CHORUS A HAND HOLD, A COMPASS A TOUGH LINE TO STEER WITH ME. SO TRACE BACK THE FAULT LINE YOU MADE IT OK FOR US. SO NOW A FEW THINGS SEEM TO SURFACE FOR ME, FRESH AND NEW AND LOOKING LIKE THEY’VE NEVER BEEN LOST AND THOUGH THE KEY WAS NEVER HIDDEN FROM ME I HAD TO FIND A WAY OF USING WHAT WAS OFFERED. CHORUS A HAND HOLD, A COMPASS A TOUGH LINE TO STEER WITH ME. SO TRACE BACK THE FAULT LINE YOU MADE IT OK FOR US. YOU ANCHORED ME HERE, THIS MUCH IS CLEAR YOU OFFERED A LINE, I HELD THIS TIME SECURED WITH A WORD, UNSEEN, UNHEARD I WOULDN’T HAVE COME THIS FAR ALONE RPT CHORUS

---------- End of the Line---------- Someone’s speaking to me … where on earth are you the message tells me Sing a wish and leave my name Was that the last call unavailable to me…. Direct line goes nowhere you must check and try again I’m sick of trying (check again) A voice in the void. Re-appear and reassure that all is o.k. the lifeline’s all connected all installed and secure. Will you recognize it will the code be right I can indicate and direct the light Couldn’t take control, you lost the line in the dark you came apart a message is waiting Harbouring the hate of what you’ve done now i just can’t reconcile the breaking of the word Your circle of untruth nurtures more and keeps you running ( break then rpt.) Now your’re disconnected the set up’s broken down you come inside a few steps test the line, turn around It is much too easy to go miles away not that you can’t fix it you just never meant to stay This is the message (try again) I won’t go away
