    Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
    I could see the city light
    Wind was blowing, time stood still
    Eagle flew out of the night

    He was something to observe
    Came in close, I heard a voice
    Standing stretching every nerve
    I had to listen had no choice

    I did not believe the information
    Just had to trust imagination
    My heart was going boom boom, boom
    "Son," he said, "Grab your things, I've come to take you home."

    To keeping silence I resigned
    My friends would think I was a nut
    Turning water into wine
    Open doors would soon be shut

    So I went from day to day
    Tho' my life was in a rut
    'Till I thought of what I'd say
    Which connection I should cut

    I was feeling part of the scenery
    I walked right out of the machinery
    My heart was going boom boom boom
    "Hey," he said, "grab your things, I've come to take you home."
    Yeah back home

    When illusion spin her net
    I'm never where I want to be
    And liberty she pirouette
    When I think that I am free

    Watched by empty silhouettes
    Who close their eyes, but still can see
    No one taught them etiquette
    I will show another me

    Today I don't need a replacement
    I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
    My heart was going boom boom boom
    "Hey," I said, "You can keep my things, they've come to take me home."
