Lyrics:

I won’t ask why,
You chose anoth­er land, anoth­er dream to hang on
You will lie,
You feel a call­ing, your rest­less nature is to blame for

Flickering stars pave the way
Signs bright­er than day,
Flares of change that can’t be tamed.

You’re not done with break­ing walls
Willing again to lose it all
Why are you walk­ing away? (what are you look­ing for?)

Away from faded promises,
you’re fly­ing away
Away, you’re chas­ing prophecies,
You’re fly­ing away
The ruins of your wasted life
Will lurk around everywhere

Don’t deny
That com­prom­ising is what you’re mostly afraid of
But your eyes
Will nev­er see a dawn purer than you’ve seen before

And your soul is set aflame
Feeding off your pain
Burns whatever gets in your way

You are fight­ing all alone
all your loved ones are long gone
will you keep on rely­ing on hope? (what are you look­ing for?)

Away from faded promises,
you’re fly­ing away
Away, you’re chas­ing prophecies,
You’re fly­ing away
The ruins of your wasted life
Will lurk around everywhere
