Lyrics:

The painter tries to paint it,
The poet tries to say it,
The philosopher tries to convey the meaning to your mind.

But here I am,
a quarter million miles away,
One human being…
One human being seeing it for the first time.

I can see the white of snow-capped mountains,
the blues and turquoise of the oceans blend…
Australia and Asia coming around the corner.
And I can’t tell where one country starts and the other one ends.

The sun is setting on the Pacific,
they’re just getting up in Rome.
I don’t see the lights of my city.
All I can see is home.

I saw the world without any borders,
without any fighting
without any fear
So, Captain, give the order,
We’re going to cross the next frontier.

I know this view won’t last forever,
Soon I’ll be back to reality.
But isn’t it the way we perceive things…
that makes them what they will be?

I saw the world without any borders,
without any fighting
without any fear
So, Captain, give the order,
We’re going to cross the next frontier.
