lyrics

quiet and alone
surrounded by a city of
a hundred thousand souls
day after day
just passing by
more footprints on the shore
messy and undone
and neck deep in the order of
a hundred thousand laws
standing in our places
and wondering
wondering what for

until we heard the call
from a long way off
so directionless and small
and so we ran it down
drawn forward by the sound
of your iron siren song
we strained our eyes until you came into our sight
and threw our arms out wide to greet you down the line

in the silent evening
heat of the day escaped
the thrill of the night awaits
fiery western sky
streetlamps flickering
sputtering to life
fumbling for the light
that burns deep in the core of us
begging to be untied
filling secret spaces
in lonely watch
obscured from the outside
until we heard the call
from a long way off
so directionless and small
and so we ran it down
drawn forward by the sound
of your iron siren song
we strained our eyes until you came into our sight
and threw our arms out wide to greet you down the line

stranded in place but with a wanderer inside
with hearts that long to travel far and free
so here we'll stand and dream of following your line
until at last it's time
for us to heed the call
from a long way off
so directionless and small
we're gonna run you down
drawn forward by the sound
of your iron siren song
we'll strain our eyes until you're here within our sight
and throw our arms out wide to greet you down the line
