[Chorus]
Don't hang that sign on me
You're the stranger 
Don't try to talk to me
You're the stranger 

On the seas
They came from far away
From the skies  Their silver birds of prey

In one day
Ten thousand years could change
We are fools 
To live your pilgrim ways

[Chorus]

And we drive 
Five hundred miles this time
To the edge
Of crystal-cut blue sky
 Silence breathes

 South of the border line
 Silent trees
Look back and wonder why
Did father and his holy son

 Spread the word and point the gun?
And where the eagle used to fly
They carve their concrete in the sky
 Tearing at our mother's skin

 Taking all her blood within
 Remember how it used to be?
Did father and his holy son
 Spread the word and point the gun

And where the eagle used to fly
They carve their concrete in the sky
 Tearing at our mother's skin
 Taking all her blood within
 Remember how it used to be?
 Stand up again and say:

[Chorus:Repeat x2]
