Another stark, cold dawn,

Another night gone by.

The wails have come and gone

In the Land Without a Sky.

 

Another quiet morn,

Another road to walk.

Pass human silhouettes

Drawn in ghastly chalk.

 

Another tear long dried,

Another face drained cold.

It gets so hard to cry

Beside corpse cart loads.

 

It’s about time to say

It’s about time to fly.

Soar up and far away

From the Land Without a Sky.
