​The Mission

This song is by Clive Nolan & Oliver Wakeman and appears on the album Jabberwocky (1999).

Original video
The boy:
Innocent lives
Lost before their time had come
Innocent lives
The cost is more than anyone could
Tell me tell me
Why?

Many have tried
A quick defeat, they died in vain
Many have tried
Whipped and beaten, pride and pain
Just tell me tell me
Why?

Too close! Too close to run away now
Too far! Too far along the path of no return

I pray for one more chance
I pray for one more chance to see the day begin

I pray for my forgiveness
I pray for my redemption
I pray for one more chance to see he day begin

Too close! Too close to hide away now
Too late! Too late to turn around now
Too long! Too long to live in fear now
Too far! Too far along the path now
Too close! Too close to run away now
Too far! Too far along the path of no return
