Lyrics

TERRA

9 BSE

 

I did roam around that world so far

Conducting tests and walking on the ice fields

I dove down to Alexandria’s streets

Years after the meltdown

 

One day she grabbed my arm and said to me

‘If you stay you’ll die here too, and the kids need you

So leave’

 

What could I do?

She was the world to me

 

On the day that I heard her cry

I think I made up my mind, ooh

Darkness reigned for years so long

Shockwaves came, the windows rattled in the house

 

Wretched earth, the wars of men obliterated the blue from your face

And she said, ‘With you the kids will grow well

The horns so loud

Please go away now

They won’t wait they’ve set the date, ooh’

 

And so I left

 

Now we are pieces of Earth we are

Hovering in spacetime, space and time

 

Terra

Tears our hearts

Stone and fire

 

Terra

Reefs and ice

Rain and sand

 

Terra

Plains and tides

Earth we are

 

Terra

Terra

Terra
