In the dead of night, I slipped away
I left my home, my own country
For political views, they persecuted me
Freedom for all, democracy

To set my people free
Got to find a way
From the grip of tyranny
Got to get away

Give to me, sanctuary
Give to me, sanctuary

As dusk casts a shadow, my fate had dawned
In this holy shrine, I pray to the Lord
Within these walls, to fulfill my plight
For what I believe, I must fight the good fight

To set my people free
Got to find a way
From the grip of tyranny
Got to get away

Give to me, sanctuary
Give to me, sanctuary

Prisoners of conscience, see the country's shame
Faceless politicians, playing power games

Out of light comes darkness, out of pleasure comes pain
We must fight against oppression, time and time again

The sands of time are running low
This holy sanctuary, my home no more
Now I'll die, your soul bleeds to death
Now I await, my passing breath

To set my people free
Got to find a way
From the grip of tyranny
Got to get away

Give to me, sanctuary
Give to me, sanctuary
Give to me, sanctuary
Give to me, sanctuary
