about

Years pass, decades, perhaps a century? The lighthouse still stands dark, the island unvisited and nobody remembers when it was ever any other way. Here is the star-gazer, a man of cold science with a slender hot wire of romance running through him. He looks up at the night skies thinking 'there must be more to life than this...' Here is the scientist, a woman of serious intent for whom emotions are other people's business to be measured like thigh-bones. She excavates the island's history thinking 'there must be more to life than this...' If only they could connect, what secrets might be revealed?

lyrics

Well I know that I am strange I will hold my hand up to that
I would love to try and change
but I have seen the stars
and I swear there are better worlds than ours
you don't want me to talk like that
seems to me you believe the world is flat

Well I know that you have dreams but most things really are exactly how they seem
You can show me then thousand stars
but I have seen this world
and I know there is still so much to learn
but you don't want me to talk like that
seems to me you believe the world is flat

call me up in the middle of the night just to tell me you were right I should leave these dreams behind
call me up in the middle of the night just to tell me you were right I should see the stars at night
call me up and we talk all night the more we talk the more I'm sure... I am right

Well I know that this is strange I will throw my lot in with that
may you never ever change
for I have seen the truth
and I've seen it here with you
you don't need me to talk like that
you and me we believe the world is flat
