Lyrics

Tom researched for years and years

With every wiseman, every sage

Nobody's going to tell you something

Every road leads back to nothing

With telepathic ease you get in their heads

You search for answers but you find questions instead

 

Eat books like a movable feast

Down every pathway, every page

Every thought as good as the next one

Evert thought's as good as nothing

From waves of love to waves of fear

Holding nothing is everything you hold dear

 

He never knew the last frontier

Was, oh, so near

Oh, so near

He never knew the last frontier

Was, oh, so near to home

 

Sit and wonder

Sit and weep

Still there's no return

Of my dear, sweet Tom

 

Return from nowhere

Return from fate

Climb the wall

For they have locked the gate

 

He never knew the last frontier 

Was, oh, so near

Oh, so near

He never knew the last frontier

Was, oh, so near to home
