Take me away to a world
where there is no blood and murder, 
‘Cause I don’t want to stay
when violence here is dearly nurtured.

Take me away to a world

devoid of discord and terror,
‘Cause I don’t belong here 
amidst screams of horror.

Take me away to a world

free from cruelty and torment
‘Cause I can’t reside here
surrounded by songs of lament.

Take me away to a world 

bereft of slaughter and carnage, 
‘Cause I can’t breathe
in this baleful crimson haze.

Take me away to a world

that doesn’t harbour enmity and hate,
‘Cause I have no place here
with tragedy looming over my fate.

Take me away to a world 

unaware of rage and malice
‘Cause I want to live in a world
that values love, hope, and peace.
