Words & Music by: Piet Louter

The wide open windows gave them eyes on the world
On which they were always deprived.
The chances of progress have been finally unfurled
And it just changed their look on their lives.
So they're getting a load of all the pretties,
They were never aware of or what was even banned.
And they found themselves straight out to be pitied
And easily been tempted to leave their land.

The wide open windows made them wild and confused
About everything, that's settled and true.
Now they meet all those modern excitements, they used
to be hold dissipated and blue.
So they're bound to let go their set of values,
'Cause their longings are finally much too hard to withstand.
And they found themselves facing the overwhelming
Passion for freedom and leaving their land.
