Track Name: SHARDS
39 it all began
Those first few steps to where I stand
Fire lit snow, twisted steel made me
Tearful families, panic distorting
Driven onto crowded trains
No one spoke
No one dared complain
For years a child would learn to live
Skin flayed by the cold
A childhood lost
No flag
No home
It was joy to hear them fly
Tear the ground go screaming by
Doors open wide and I knew I’d survive
My child don’t look back
Get up and run
George listen I beg you
Hurry and run child run
Run just as fast as you can
Get away from the wreckage
Make for the trees
We’ll meet again
It’s a matter of time
44 we face the sea
To rest our eyes a victory
For one moment we hope to dream
How many lost souls learn to live tired and all alone?
No end in sight
No flag
No home
It was a joy they filled the sky
Hit the ground go screaming by
Arms open wide and I knew I’d survive
My child don’t look back
Get up and run
George listen I beg you
Hurry and run child run
Run just as fast as you can
Get away from the wreckage
Make for the trees
We’ll meet again
My child don’t look back
Get up and run
My child don’t look back
Get up and run
