For the most part, I had no idea what goal I was trying to accomplish when I wrote this, but it sounded like a good idea at the time, so here it is. Live with it.

Fly away, fly away
to a land of forgotten promises
where dreams come to sleep,
and lost causes wither away.
Fly, fly away
to a place absent of time and record
where plans needn't be made today,
and tomorrow will exhume what little remained from yesterday.
Fly away, far away
to a mysterious world of hope and fear
where the sickened and the guilty flee to rest,
and the innocent and pure already reside.
Fly, fly, fly away
to an enlightened and just terrain
where no conundrum is left unsolved,
and no crime is left unpunished.
Fly away with me
to this escape seen only through your eyes
where we've all been at least once,
and nobody leaves alone.
