We start a fire and sing our names
Watch the stars above us
Beyond the sky, on the other side of rain
Singing spells of wisdom
We paint our faces in blood and sand
Burning sticks mark our skin
The spirits talk in windy caves
Rivers flowing towards the sea

We've lived through a few very weird centuries
Do you realize that by now?
We must have taken an odd turn, somewhere along the way
Even if we don't know how
So we forgot our songs, so we forgot ourselves
Trading our souls for a crown

We kneel to new gods and we read new fairy-tales
So we left our tribes in search of a holy grail
Cities have rised, cities have crumbled
We built our walls, we rolled our dice and every time we fumbled

We really don't like taking responsibility
To keep our eyes open and wide
So why don't you come and rule for eternity?
We'll vote you to keep our false pride
You can do whatever you want, you can do whatever you please
You can even take our own lives
So land down and march with your drums
So we can pretend it's all right
We want you to tell us all your wonderful, wonderful lies

Climbing down the trees to grow a bigger mind
A simple monkey step, a leap for humankind
Reaching for a bone to crush our neighbor's brain
Dig out iron ore to build a better chain
To forge a bigger chain
We are still in chains!

The traditions you're not allowed to change
Common sense will tell what's normal and what's strange
It's the laws, the civilation borders
It's the authorities, keep following their orders
And all the time you kept your little dream to fly away

Who's the enemy? You don't know anymore
Not a friend in sight to knock upon your door
Looking for a job all suit up for success
You are looking for a way out of this mess
And all the time you kept your little dream to fly away
