Around the strangers moved, the shouts I felt within
Forests of pylons built, the scaffolding is raised
They act convinced of freedom.
Crossed over by the bridge
We recognised the place - places we knew as children
Fences divide the land, homes boxed like rabbit hutches.
Goodbye to the village

Monopolise the holy ground, all that we hold as sacred
And now the cities never end, and how the cities stretch forever
And in the morning promise me great times will come again
Let the legends promise me the earth shall rise again

Goodbye to the village
Goodbye to the village

I'll never never see my home
You'll never never see your home
