Reversal Of Time (Remastered)

from Reversal of Time (Remastered) by Elegant Simplicity



Ecology, history, alien influence? It's all in this track!


Try as you might it's all history
It's gone before you even begin
Every little shade and nuance of language
Every little act and every little deed

It's happened before
It's happening now
It'll happen again
Can't stop it anyhow

Try as you might it's all history
The gift of hindsight means nothing to me
I can only see as far as the next uncertainty

Don't get in my way, I've far too much to lose
I haven't got the time for chit-chat with you
So keep your distance and keep your mind
You can keep your watch and you can keep your time

And when it all begins
When the centuries blur
You'll find me in the stars looking down
We have to return to what it was before
Make it clean and make it pure

There are people and world's waiting out there
Who need to see it grow to claim their share
Hanging on to our every choice
We have to get it right this time
The need to survive doesn't justify the crime
The need to survive doesn't justify the crime

Is there any point
Is there any reason
Did anybody think we'd ever turn out like this
Was it genetic or something that just happened
Has time passed us by
Has time passed us by

How can you tell me
That you love the way things are
When they've caused you so much suffering and pain

How can you live like that
On the edge of some great horror
That comes to you when the world's asleep
That comes to you when the world's asleep

Don't you sometimes wish
That time was your tool
And to turn it back was your only life's desire

A reversal of fortunes
A reversal of time
Give us back our history
Give us back our lives

They gave us the pyramids
The wheel and the wall
They gave us the plough
The seed and the soil
They gave us the tools and the knowledge
They gave us the power and the will
They gave us the arts and the sciences
They gave us the source and the cure to all ills

The waste and the greed
Borne of man
As tragedies unfold
Somewhere in the depths of time
Our story's being told
