Time Cube Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The planet was molded from great clouds of dust
Then molten eruptions would burst through the crust
A new sun was shining and covered the earth
The heavens all knowing acknowledged the birth
Verse 2
The seas were forming before life began
It would take a long time to crawl on the land
The rivers were waiting for the arrival
The lowlands provided a place of survival
Verse 3
Man cam from the mud and the ooze and the slime
An integral part of a master design
He gazed at the stars and the moon in the sky
Some knew they were going and some wondered why
Verse 4
Man made a beginning and went to the moon
A few fellow creatures predicted earth's doom
His colonisation out into space is more than
A great leap for the whole human race
Verse 5
Some dream of a journey to the neighboring star
And some will not listen, they say it's too far
He'll create a machine and launch it someday
To reach Alpha Centauri four light years away
Verse 6
Then evolve to the stars of our galaxy
And write a new chapter of man's destiny
Man came from the mude and the ooze and the slime
An integral part of a master design
