Lyrics

The past is a foreign country
Two sides tore apart

In the great scheme of tomorrow
What no one really knows
The blood line has diverted
Like a river that overflows

Oh, where there's temptation
Oh, there is revelation
Oh-oh, across a thousand nations
Is this the rise or is this the fall?

Of the broken promise land
Roses and ashes lie
Where your shadow falls

In a broken promise land
It takes an honest man to heed the call

A storm blows up in the desert
A hurricane hits the shore
There's a thousand stars in the night sky
I wonder which one could be yours?

Oh, I'm not going backwards
Oh, I'm only facing forwards
Oh-oh, be it left or right
Be it right or wrong
The time has come

For the broken promise land
Roses and ashes lie
Where your shadow falls

In a broken promise land
All that you had to give
You gave for us all

The past is a foreign country
Two sides tore apart
Tore apart

In a broken promise land

In a broken promise land
Where your shadow lies
Roses and ashes will fall

In a broken promise land
Roses and ashes lie
Where your shadow falls
