Riff 2a
x1 /w lyrics:

I know it's most unusual, to come before you so;

Riff 2b
x1 /w lyrics:

But I've found an ancient miracle, I thought that you should know.

Riff 3
x4 /w lyrics:

Listen to my music,
and hear what it can do.
There's something here as strong as life.
I know that it will reach you.

Riff 1
x4 /w lyrics:

Yes we know, it's nothing new. It's just a waste of time.
We have no need for ancient ways. Our world is doing fine.
Another toy which helped destroy the elder race of man.
Forget about your silly whim, it doesn't fit the plan. No-how.

Riff 2a
x1 /w lyrics:

I can't believe you're saying, these things just can't be true.

Riff 2b
x1 /w lyrics:

Our world could use such beauty, just think what we might do.

Riff 3
x4 /w lyrics:

Listen to my music,
and hear what it can do.
There's something here as strong as life.
I know that it will reach you.

Riff 1
x4 /w lyrics:

Don't annoy us further, oh, we have our work to do.
Just think about the average. What use have they for you?
Another toy which helped destroy the elder race of man.
Forget about your silly whim, it doesn't fit the plan.
