'Why do they choose to be so alone?'

We need each other desperately and yet we so often choose division and loneliness. This song asks many ancient question using a modern electronic style. The innocent questioning of the song is made all the more poignant by Steven and Peter's plaintive voices. The boys sing the first two verses as solos before joining together for the uplifting conclusion in the final verse and chorus.


Wandering far, so far from home
Helpless and cold, lost and alone.
Why do they choose to be so alone
So far from home
So far from home
Why have we strayed so far from home,
Turning away from all we have known?
When will we know why we have grown
So far from home
So far from home
The day will come: we’ll return home.
The sun will shine down and melt hearts of stone.
We will reach out to others who roam
So far from home
So far from home
So far from home (someday we’ll find you)
So far from home (we’ll bring home)
So far from home (those who roam)
So far from home
