Shangri-La In Pieces
Lyrics
An eagle's cry
A lone and cold goodbye
To life that is a memory

Look who we are
How could we come this far
And let it fall into debris?

We tried and we failed and
Fought and blew it away

Shangri-La's in pieces while we're fighting on our own
Shangri-La we'll build again together stone by stone

We have no choice
If we seek paradise
We can't turn back towards the black

I long to gaze
In better future days
To marvel from our highest peak

This desolation
Burns me deep in my soul

Shangri-La's in pieces while we're fighting on our own
Shangri-La we'll build again together stone by stone
