You come dancing across the waters on silver wings of air
Looking for the New World where ancient dreams are shared.
I know you're living there with the desert in your eyes,
Far horizons on your mind,
The early morning fire rising into empty eastern skies,
The day-blind stars waiting for the light to arrive
Looking for the Sahara to be lost in
Looking for an oasis where you can feel alive.
I know you're living there
In the palace of the sun
A mirage, shimmering
Somewhere, where they don't care who you are.
Should I stay or should I go
Down to the valley below?
Colliding with the air that you breathe
On that sacred altar where we bleed
A sacrifice to be or not to be?
The sky is falling --
Do you know what that means?
