Thrice – The Color Of The Sky Lyrics

My first and foremost memory
Is staring up in wonder at the wall
It circumscribed the city
They said beyond it nothing dwelt at all
But I
Came to wonder if the stories all were true
So one night I made my mind up
I resolved that I would find a passage through

And as I made my plans
My head would spin and swiftly dance between the whys
Like why the roads were all dead ends
Why we’d no word to name the color of the sky
And why
Did these tunnels lead me deep beneath the streets?
When I was through I lit my lamp
With something soft and green and damp beneath my feet
And I don’t know the way
But I know
That I belong out here
On this journey that I never thought I’d make
Setting out
Across a new frontier
A new horizon with each eager step I take

As the stars begin to fade
I stride to meet the breaking day and breathe it in
It rakes over my tongue
So crisp and cool inside my lungs, against my skin

And I
See the colors burst and bloom beneath the dawn
The brilliance overwhelms me
Leaves me wondering what new world I’m even on

And I don’t know the way
But I know
That I belong out here
On this journey that I never thought I’d make
Setting out
Across a new frontier
A new horizon with each eager step I take

I don’t know the way
But I know
That I belong out here
On this journey that I never thought I’d make
Setting out
Across a new frontier
A new horizon with each eager step I take
