Pass through borders into east
You will see the same old streets
Sweeping winds into your eyes
Broken future, wasted lives
In the corner of that square
Crumbling statues now lie there
Like those relics of the past
All of us are now outcast

The time was on our side
When everyone had their place

Fly away, away
Fly into a time gone by
Fly away, away
And you hope it will return

Once I had an open mind and time to understand
But every time we had to lie to serve the native land
While we try to overcome the madness and the wars
They will come with newer guns
And fewer ways to help the poor

Fly away, away
Fly into a time gone by
Fly away, away
And you hope it will return

Now the leaders come and go
They close up the gates and doors we made
For one moment we were free
Now our future, bright is the past and we close our minds to make them last
While waiting we bow our heads and pray

Through your life you toiled the land and you served the state with pride
Now you're left with empty hands and nobody by your side
Everlasting peace awaits
A paradise with pearly gates
So they told you all your days
Made your sacrifice your ways

The time was on your side
When everyone shared your fate

Fly away, away
Fly into a time gone by
Fly away, away
And you hope it will return
(x2)
