Maybe somewhere in the southern hemisphere
There could be room for all this love
Where they've saved a place for innocence
And what is still mysterious

And their dreaming time
An' they're dreaming time

Because we've broken down the wilderness
And we've blackened up the skies
And we cry 'cause we've got no vision left
While the smoke gets in our eyes

And there's no more time
And the dream is dying

But I love you, baby
And I know you and I
Can find a way to Heaven
Just like Orion in the sky

He's the long lost hero
He's the guardian of your son
But can he protect us, baby
From all the sad things we've done

Now I know there's no sense in hiding
And we can't escape this war
And I have made my peace with dying
Down here on this killing floor

In a world gone blind
Where there's no more time

But I love you, baby
And I know by and by
We gonna find a way to Heaven
Just like Orion in the sky

He can walk upon the water
He can shine for everyone
But can he protect us, baby
From all the sad things we've done

Now is it too much to ask in a lifetime
For just one shot at happiness
Or do you just have to laugh at the right lines
Until you come face to face with the looking glass
To be reckoned with the sins of our time?

'Cause, I love you, baby
I can see you and I
As we fly away together
Up to Orion in the sky

He's the last of the fallen angels
He's the light of the Southern Cross
Maybe he can take us, baby
Back to the paradise we've lost

So, I'll see you darlin'
Now fly, baby, fly
Down across the Fiji Islands
To where the Seven Sisters cry

Gather all your dreams and take them
Somewhere so far out of reach
Follow the sword of the hunter, baby
And meet me on the beach

We are forever tied
Still on the run
To the medicine man
For all the sad, sad things we've done
