We tie our fears
Around the strings of a kite
Releasing them off skyscrapers
Ten miles high

Letting go of sorrow
In the blink of an eye
Burning a trail for tomorrow
Across mirrors of fire

Dreams scattered upon the rooftops
Glisten like beams of glass
Fragile to the earthquakes
Of the cities underpass

Skeleton structures
Claw out to the stars
Cranes dismantling concrete bodies
Over a sea of cars
