The Promised Land

Ahead I see the shoes

Well-worn from all the land

Gentle ones and kind

As well as bleak and baleful ones

We've seen

Our journey through decades

The auras of the world

Are always suffusing our heads

Faces passing by

Some to notice and some to forget

Our shadows stay behind

Where once we were condemned

To be slaves

Today nothing is left

But our bleached and battered

Skin and bones

Now our hearts arrived

Where our souls are still longing to be

Step by step we go

The road is long, the fate in our hands

Our way to the promised land

We seek to reach it soon

The land where we can linger after all

A place to just call home

Ahead I see a boy

His young hands outworn from hard work

Who defines his life

He is not the one who pulls the strings

But see

Our journey far away

We beg for freedom

But sorrow is all we receive

Too weak to fight against

But too strong to just accept without hate

These days are long ago

I turn my eyes to better dreams

We don't fear the dark

Cause we want to achieve an aim

From now on there's no mourn

Only laughter will be our guide

Now our hearts arrived

And our souls don't need to long anymore

Our way to the promised land

We seek to reach it soon

The land where we can linger after all

A place to just call home
