Another Country

If we could reach beyond the bounds of blame
And make history blind
And peel away the easy balm of words
This is all we'd find:
A mother's cries, fear in an old man's eyes,
A child's blood on the walls
No easy price to pay, no harder way to fall

Another time, another place
Another country, another state of grace
You'll walk beside me, I'll tell you no lies
And then you'll see another country in my eyes

There is a place for anger, things we won't forgive
And I know it's not enough to face your shame with words you'll never live
But let's begin to look within, to where the future lies
And find the strength to live beneath another country's skies

Another time, another place
Another country, another state of grace
You'll walk beside me, I'll tell you no lies
And then you'll see another country in my eyes
