Merciful Release

Want to see the blue sky
Where no buildings block the sun
Don’t care how many years I’ve had
I want to feel like I’ve just begun

I want to make it
Out of the city
I want to make it
In one piece
I’ve been dreaming for so long
Of this merciful release

I want to tell my father
Wherever he may be
Your son made it out alive
Your son is finally free

I don’t understand the music
Of the city no more
Every day’s a fight
What are we fighting for

I want to see the desert
To the mountains slowly climb
To the rocks that change so slowly
That they seem unchanged
In one lifetime
