lyrics

We set out in the early morning light
On a journey to prove we're not defined
By the gravity that pull us towards the ground
We'll lift our bodies through the clouds

But the mountain will not yield
As we scale its icy shield

There were six of us who tried
I alone held the compass tight
As we drifted off from the course we'd laid
They all believed
It'd be okay

As the sun set down behind the mountain range
I felt the darkness in the clouds that howled our names
But the crew was not convinced and they pitched their tents
They all believed
It'd be okay

Still the mountain will not yield
To the prayers I keep concealed

Then the storm knocked out our radio
We lost all contact with the outside world
The snow grew thick and covered up our tracks
We knew there was no turning back

We set out in the storm and snow and ice
On a journey to prove we're not defined
By the gravity that pulls us towards the ground
We'll lift our bodies through the clouds
