Up, Up and Away

Up, up and away.

We all fly up, up and away.

Up, into the sky.

Up, farther and farther from the Earth.

Away, from those we love,

Only to end up in the arms of another.

Up, towards the stars.

Up, into and unknown wasteland.

Away, from all we know,

only to end up in a strange place.

Sometimes for the better.
