(Look up) There`s no man on the moon tonight 
Guess he`s turned his back on me (once again) 
The wicked walls of this dead-end town are closing in and I can`t breathe 
(Sail away) Down the river of shattered dreams; 
My destiny`s disguised (but I will find it) 
Empty promises flow my way, adrift in shame; do you feel the same? 

[Chorus]
Another time, another place we won`t be prisoners of fate 
Somehow, we`ll find a way to get out of here 
Oh, why don`t we make the great escape and set our sites on higher ground? 
We`re taking the ride all the way to the other side 

(Step inside) See the man with the cracked guitar 
Selling tales of sonic gray (the skies are falling) 
No one gathers to sympathize or pay tribute to his fading flame 
Tattoo girl on a butterfly 
Sowing seeds of boundless hope (and devotion) 
Follow me through a leap of faith; I know the way, I heard her say 

[Chorus]
 
I know why you cry 
Just let go; it`s easy if you try 

Another time, another place we won`t be prisoners of fate 
Somehow, we`ll find a way to get out of here 
Oh, why don`t we make the great escape and set our sites on higher ground? 
We`re taking the ride all the way to the other side. Whoa, yeah! 
We`ve got to make the great escape and leave behind what can`t be saved 
We`re taking the ride all the way to the other side 

Don`t look back, don`t look back... 
Come on, come on, come on and take my hand. 
Whoa! Sail away! 
Do you feel the same like I do? 
Don`t look back
