I wish I could fly
Soar into the sky
what a beautiful sight
I wish I could just take flight
but I'm in this horrible place
Think of all the things I've had to face
but I'm still thriving I'm still going
The only thing I am knowing
is that I am not safe

No matter how hard I try
I can't stop thinking how can I fly
I'm separated from society
from all humanity
you expect me to believe
I can succeed
but I'm still thriving I'm still going
the only thing I am knowing
is that I am not safe

The Russian planes cascading down to us
the only thing I can do is run
I can go to Romania, Hungary or Poland
I just want to get out of this wasteland
Poisonous smoke biting at my lungs
The piercing sound of Russian guns
but I’m still thriving I’m still going
The only thing I am knowing
is that I am not safe
