Feelin' sick once again, I'd give anything
To be back home, safe and warm inside
I can't stand the crowds or the smell that surrounds me
The cloth and key still preach chastity

Take me back so I can see the way it used to be

I lay down and enter a dream unlike anywhere I've been
All is silent and sweet
Then I'm falling down to the ground and I'm lost from what I've found
Can't stand the sounds no more

Take me back so I can see the way it used to be
The way it used to be

Move me from the water too cold to swim
Bring me to the land
Move me from the water that I see within
Bring me to the land

Radio waves splash through my head
To a rhythm that I crave
Radio waves relive the moment
Seems like yesterday

Take me back to Twelve Mile Bay where I'll sit at the edge
With my feet in the water
Take me back as the sun fades away
Break down the walls so I can breathe

Move me from the water too cold to swim
Bring me to the land
Move me from the water that I see within
Bring me to the land

Move me from the water too cold to swim
Bring me to the land
Move me from the water that I see within

The way it used to be
The way it used to be

Move me from the water too cold to swim
Bring me to the land
Move me from the water that I see within
Bring me to the land

Move me from the water too cold to swim
Bring me to the land
Move me from the water that I see within
