The sun was setting in the blood-red sky
We were at the seashore, you and I,
Caught in a tidal wave rising high
We were swept before fate's eye.

I was lost in a war torn land
A civil war was raging
Landmines were under the sand
Hatred was blazing.

I crossed the borderline,
And entered into a safe plain
Free of landmine,
Terrorism and pain.

Following a dark night
Aurora is smiling,
Welcoming to a path bright
A new day is dawning.

Ending a wild hurricane
A balmy breeze is blowing
Though the road ahead is solitary
No further misery.
