Lyrics

Faith in science over superstition
I won’t bow, where God’s in question
Rather ask forgiveness than permission
Charge me with sins of omission

Meet me at the bridge
With confessions in the dark
I’ll tell mine if you tell yours
Opposite directions, we both march forth
Searching for true north
True north, true north

Carrying our map with no direction
Lost our way without intention
We took aim and somehow missed the mark
Blinded by our imperfection

Meet me at the border
Pointing weapons in the dark
I’ll drop mine if you drop yours
Opposite directions, we both march forth
Searching for true north
True north, true north, true, true north

You searched the harbor for the truth
Paying ransom with your youth
Tell yourself there’s nothing left to lose
Bite the apple, if you choose…

Meet me at the bridge
Exchange our prisoners in the dark
I’ll go my way, you go yours
Opposite directions, we both march forth
Searching for true north
True north, true north
True, true north
