Lyrics

They heard me calling Ignored completely
Even the rays of sun Were trying to avoid me
I climbed as high as I could get
To see as far as I could see
I was only halfway there
When they took the high ground from under me

I feel like I am treading water – treading water
And I don’t like to feel my feet away from
Terra Firma – Treading Water

A clear horizon I see the future
Spreading for centuries In every direction
The lights all seem so far away
I hear them play their distant song
Hidden by the light of day
Calling the souls of everyone

I feel like I am treading water – treading water
And I don’t like to feel my feet away from
Terra Firma – Treading Water
Treading Water – Treading Water

I analyse closely my circumstances
But it doesn’t really matter cause
I don’t have traction
If I had my feet then
I could start a flow
I would leave this hole – away I’d go

I feel like I am treading water – treading water
And I don’t like to feel my feet away from Terra Firma
