lyrics

A long way from half Moon Bay
Around the world halfway
He always kept the world at bay
He seemed to like it just that way
Froze impressions so they'd stay
An arm's length away
But then his armor fell away

He dropped the camera in the stream
He crossed the border, lost the frame
He dropped the camera in the stream
He is free and, free and strange

All the faces he'd portrayed
Turn to him, return his gaze
Unscripted and unmediated
Intense and untranslated
Senses flooding unabated
He notices he's afraid
Afraid and so alive

He dropped the camera in the stream
He crossed the border, lost the frame
He dropped the camera in the stream
He is free and, free and strange
