The Overture

 

And with this message

That I bring to you

A beacon of light

To see you through

For time is on our side

And a holy man

Does say to me

To always to be blind

And never to see

It's not the way he planned it

Oh no

 

The time has come to gather up your thoughts

For you have said your piece

The lords of light will change this land

From famine into feast

The buildings that once stood tall

Have crumbled to the ground

The silver warriors who came in force

Are nowhere to be found

 

Time is the essence the priests do say

To restore your faith in man

For the job you do and the role you play

Will help rebuild this land

Through empty streets and dusty fields

We'll fight for what we need

Protected by our swords and shields

We can replant the seed

 

The roads ahead are long and winding

On which the bandits thrive

But we have the power of finding

Illusion to keep us alive

So through the valleys and over the hills

We'll march and sing in rhyme

We'll fight until we lose our will

For essence is our time

 

The sun the moon

The darkened sky

The morning dew

Reflecting in my eye

The rising mist

The dampened earth

Are just reminders of what life's worth

Whoah yeah

Whoah yeah

Whoah yeah

 

And with this message

That I bring to you

A beacon of light

To see you through

For time is on our side

For time is the essence
