This song is the title track of the album and contains some of the more experimental musical content to be found on the record. It was inspired greatly by a photo that I came across on Instagram. The picture was of a wide open corn field with birds circling around a tree at the centre. I don't know why this image struck me the way it did but it became an integral element to the song.


Peering round the crowd of smiling faces and feel alone
All the friends, acquaintances that gather in my home
Telling marvelled tales of small talk I appear
Interested but heaven forbid they hear what’s being said
In my own head, in my own head, on my own

Well the nights I don’t remember are the best of all
No consequences when the next day won’t recall
I long for lands abroad
And tales in foreign tongue
Where tribe and nation
Honour our time beneath the sun
And can this be found? And can this be found?
A land as this

I wander through the fields of corn
Not a soul for miles around
A panorama of land and sky
That such beauty would befall my eyes

I reach out my arms and take it in
And thank the author of all I see
For painting the most perfect scene
Brushstrokes revealing majesty
