Lyrics

In the half light of morning
I was walking by the sea
Out on the horizon
Coming closer to me
I could hear voices calling
They were carried on the breeze
Oh brother won’t you help me?
I got the stranger’s disease

Won’t you lead me to your lucky land?
Don’t bury your head in the red sand

Now the news has been broken
All hands were lost
Every promise ever spoken
Now we’re counting the cost
I see the face of a stranger
Whose suffering has grown
Punishment inflicted
On a child without a home

Won’t you lead me to your lucky land?
Don’t bury your head in the red sand
We are all flesh and blood
Walking through the fire and the flood
Won’t you lead me to your lucky land

My lucky land!

I can hear voices calling?
Have pity on me!
While the flame of compassion
Is still burning on the sea
Now I hope and I wonder
If the gods ever will
Come down from the temple
I see the light on the hill

Won’t you lead me to your lucky land?
Don’t bury your head in the red sand
We are all flesh and blood
Walking through the fire and the flood
Won’t you lead me to your lucky land?

My lucky land!
