There is my kite
Caught around a signpost

And I feel happy for its freedom
When it's tangled in the trees and wires
I know it's my own fault
All my fault

But there are no fires in hell
There is only Mercy
(I believe)

One day my kite will escape forever
And I will jump to catch the trailing string
Wishes and wants will fall from my pocket
As I wave, full of peace
