Overture Lyrics

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
