X Marks The Spot [HIDDEN TRACK]

Ok, so in my quest for the official lyrics, here's what Amazon Music tells me the lyrics are. (I have to type this out because it won't let me copy.) The significant discrepancies are in bold.

(So I reach for it)

Stare into darkness, staring at doom
My heart go boom, bo-boom boom
Stare into darkness, admit defeat
Coming home and I'm finding no peace

And I know and I know and I know
I know I'm unlocked
And I know and I know and I know
I know what you've got

I put my hands up to the sky, I feel alive
Got a rocketship that I want to ride
Put my hands up to the sky, it's all right
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

(So I reach for it)
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure
(So I reach for it)

Stare into darkness, staring at doom
You make my heart go boom, bo-boom boom
Superhero, a masterpiece
Been innocent but a sinner in me

And I know and I know and I know
I know I'm in love
And I know and I know and I know
I know when I'm lost

I just put my hands up to the sky, I feel alive
Got a rocketship that I want to ride
Put my hands up to the sky, feeling insight
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

Put my hands up to the sky, feelin' alive
I got a rocket, eyes on the prize
Put my hands up to the sky, I'm gonna find
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

So I reach for it
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure
So I reach for it, yeah, yeah
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

(So I reach for it)
And I know and I know, and I know
Know what I got (so I reach for it)
X marks the spot

So I put my hands up to the sky, I feel alive
Got a rocketship that I want to ride
Put my hands up to the sky, feeling insight
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure
Put my hands up to the sky, feelin' alive
I got a locket,
eyes on the prize
Put my hands up to the sky, I'm gonna find
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure
Yeah, yeah, wherever you are
Thanks for sharing!
I actually quite like the lyrics (and the song) [emoji4]

Here's the vocal version of this song:
Surprisingly, he sings "so I race for it" at the 1:55 mark.
Here are the adjusted lyrics based on what I have learned so far (contrast this to what I had a few posts ago):

(So I race for it)

Staring at darkness, staring at doom
My heart bo-boom, bo-boom boom
Staring at darkness, and let defeat
Come along when I'm finding no peace
And I know and I know and I know
I know I'm unlocked
And I know and I know and I know
I know what you got

So I put my hands up into the sky, I feel alive
Got a rocketship that I wanna ride
Put my hands up into the sky, it's so right
Wherever you are, I find that treasure

(So I race for it)
Wherever you are, I find that treasure
(So I race for it)

Stare into darkness, staring at doom
You make my heart bo-boom, bo-boom boom
Superhero, a masterpiece
Been in a saver, the center in me
And I know and I know and I know
I know I'm in love
And I know and I know and I know
I know when I'm lost

I just put my hands up into the sky, I feel alive
Got a rocketship that I wanna ride
Put my hands up into the sky, feeling insight
Wherever you are, I find that treasure
Put my hands up into the sky, feelin' alight
I got a rocket, eyes on the prize
Put my hands up into the sky, I'm gonna fight
Wherever you are, I find that treasure

So I race for it
Wherever you are, I find that treasure
So I race for it, yeah, yeah
Wherever you are, I find that treasure

(So I race for it)
And I know and I know, and I know
I know what I got (so I race for it)
X marks the spot

So I put my hands up into the sky, I feel alive
Got a rocketship that I wanna ride
Put my hands up into the sky, feeling insight
Wherever you are, I find that treasure
Put my hands up into the sky, feelin' alight
I got a locket, eyes on the prize
Put my hands up into the sky, I'm gonna fight
Wherever you are, I find that treasure

If anyone can separate the vocals out from this track, maybe we can use it to make an instrumental... Anybody out there? :)

I have always heard it like "race", or could it be "raise" (since it is put my hands up into the sky)

OK, I'll put it in here too:

If you are putting links to the 5.1 Surround version files on the forums, please do it only in the Multimedia section.
Btw, Stephen specifically asked not to share them " in public". (otherwise I could have saved myself all the DM work).

It's only 1/6th of a song, and it's not like I'm sharing all of them. I think it's fine.
it sounds like he says "race" both times here, not just the first time :thinking:
Oh, yes, that was just my Careless Evil Twin forgetting to change it. I'll fix it right now.

I think so too. They don't even play Army of One that much.

they act like it doesn't even exist let alone playing live haha
i.e. even missing in the official song lyrics page.

it's interesting how they treat so-called "hidden" tracks... Life is For Living and Til Kingdom Come both have their own lyric pages, but Chinese Sleep Chant and The Escapist aren't mentioned at all (for CSC it makes some sense because the lyrics aren't THAT intelligible anyway, and i suppose The Escapist really only has one line of lyrics)

It's still strange why those songs (that actually have lyrics, despite being just a few lines) don't have lyric pages and songs like AHT, MX and even CS do...

And it's even more strange that there is an exception to this rule. O Reprise has a lyrics page stunned.gif

to me the obvious outlier is xmts. because it is more of a "proper lyric" song. maybe the rest of the band was like, "isn't it enough that we included it in the lp??" haha i would completely understand that.

to me, all those songs make sense to have listed because they are part of the album tracklisting (or also EP tracklisting i suppose in the case of O Reprise? that one's complicated :p).
songs like XMTS, CSC and The Escapist are not technically listed on the albums. that's my guess for that :shrug: but then neither are Life is for Living or Til Kingdom Come, so who knows? :p

edit: and now that i think about it, those instrumental tracks could still be listed without having actual lyrics pages.
it's times like this we could use the Oracle back :joy:
