He could've tuned in  tuned in
But he tuned out
A bad time nothing could save him
Alone in a corridor  waiting  locked out
He got up outta there  ran for hundreds of miles
He made it to the ocean  had a smoke in a tree
The wind rose up  set him down on his knee

A wave came crashing like a fist to the jaw
Delivered him wings  "Hey  look at me now"
Arms wide open with the sea as his floor
Oh power oh

He's flying
Whole
High wide, oh

He floated back down 'cause he wanted to share
His key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere
But first he was stripped and then he was stabbed
By faceless men, well, fuckers
He still stands

And he still gives his love, he just gives it away
The love he receives is the love that is saved
And sometimes is seen a strange spot in the sky
A human being that was given to fly

High flying
Oh, oh
High flying
Oh, oh
He's flying
Oh, oh
