the purpose of my mission
was to see the ocean
i have not seen the ocean
i have not tasted the rain
and if you will not let me
land this airplane
trust my intuition
then my mission's in vain

why does time keep moving on so quickly
why can't i distinguish dusk from dawn
why does time keep moving on so quickly
why does time keep moving on

patton, i have come a great long distance
had my protectors and sisters
said i will not be detained
handcuffs cannot restrain my choices
we don't listen to our voices
then our mission's in vain

    I'm almost 100% sure this line is "at my protector's insistence."

    I'm almost 100% sure this line is "at my protector's insistence."

    Sorry for the double-post, but wanted to make sure it's noted as a correction.
