11. Before Time Began (6:29)
The daylight fades and the stars come out
But there's never much to talk about
Another day goes rushing by and here we are just wondering why
We have to belong with a sense of purpose
That's all we need, without them we're worthless
Ah, we've come so far, hmm, but then again
All we see is more of the same
It's getting crowded here we agree no doubt
Oh dear brother what's it all about?

Hey you over there why don't you throw down your spear?
We all need some help right now
Where are we going from here?
The way things are working out
It won't be too long before we have to move
Better start thinking about it while there's still time to choose

Every day of my life I discover
Someone murdering my sisters and brothers
In the name of some god or another
What do you know?

For the first precious few it's time to go
What might have been we'll never know
All those bad ideas became the law
Oh yes, we've forgotten what we're looking for
All of you angels it's time to gather your wings
Leave it all behind you won't need any of those things
We're going on through the darkness hand in hand
To step into the future
Before time began

And for those who remain with your chosen gods
May your prayers be answered.
