lyrics

The beating ticket must be torn in half
Defeat the distance on a shared born path
For when two travel, truths unravel
Truths unravel when two travel
And every journey is a blood-filled vein
Release your captive on an open plain
For when two travel, truths unravel
Truths unravel when two travel.

The world rests heavy in your hands
The great escape is to be the lesser man
Fall to knees and need no plan
Few are free the more they understand
The world rests heavy in your hands
The great escape is to be the lesser man.

An intersection is a test to friends
Divides directions to their own mean ends
For when two travel, truths unravel
Truths unravel when two travel
Love is the distance between man and cross
Two arms extended make a lie of loss
For when two travel, truths unravel
Truths unravel when two travel.

The world rests heavy in your hands
The great escape is to be the lesser man
Fall to knees and need no plan
Few are free the more they understand
The world rests heavy in your hands
The great escape is to be the lesser man.

We'll dive down to the ocean
And we'll make our home in a deep-sea cave
Our shells will all be opened
They'll be filled with song, they'll be filled with song.
We'll dive down to the ocean
And we'll make our home in a deep-sea cave
Our shells will all be opened
They'll be filled with song, they'll be filled with song.

Dive down to the ocean
And we'll make our home in a deep-sea cave
Our shells will all be opened
There'll be nothing wrong, there'll be nothing in our way.
