First single by The Distant North

Produced by Johnny Renshaw at Bandit Studios


I've seen things you'll never see and felt things you will never feel.
Seen new worlds and faces, surreal and distant places.
All this burden placed on me and falsification of your ideals.
You say that I'm losing touch but I found a true meaning.

Disconnect myself from you and your perceived reality
You're right I've closed my heart but I've opened up my mind.

I've found love you'll never know, seen beauty beyond this world.
Your mind is shut and your heart is cold, your heart is cold.

There's more to this world than meets the eye,
there's more to this world if you keep an open mind.

Like floodlights in the fog,
paintings to the blind.
Hidden in the questions are the answers we never find,
never find, we'll never find.

All you are is the past, but the present is brighter than you can see.
You're right I've closed my heart but I've opened up my mind.

Paving my way through, emotions left behind.
The past is the past.
Departing thoughts fade away.
All I see, all I feel,
is a weight lifted.

All I see, illuminates around me.
All I see, this ardent clarity.
