1. Well it's not far down to paradise. At least it's not for me. 
2. It's not far to never never land. No reason to pretend. 
4. It's not far back to sanity.        At least it's not for me.

And if the wind is right you can find the joy of innocence again. 
And when the wind is right you can sail away and find serenity.
