Flight

Surrounded by a war-machine

Our faces aren't meant to be seen

We've never seen so much ha-tred

Surrounded by the guns

In a war that was never won

We've never seen so much blood-shed

I see a dove that can escape it all

A dove who never saw Baghdad fall

It's a fleeting escape

To dream, to fly

Is a dream, too high

A dream about leaving

Is a dream worth believing

Defeated by a gnawing pain

By a hunger that won't be slain

We've never seen so much starvation

Do you hear the screams at night?

Do you see the human plight?

We've never seen so much annihilation

I see a dove that can escape it all

A dove who's never seen Darfur refugee sprawl

It's a fleeting escape

To dream, to fly

Is a dream, too high

A dream about leaving

Is a dream worth believing x 2

Living in an open jail

The shells pounding never seems to fail

I've never seen so many afraid

Passing through another guard

Who glared at me his last regard

I've never seen so many enemies made

I see a dove that can escape it all

Who's never heard the rockets fall

Its a fleeting escape

To dream, to fly

Is a dream, too high

A dream about leaving

Is a dream worth believing
