Lyrics:

Seen from the height

Of a thousand miles

The earth looks the same as it did

How is it we can fly faster than day

But we can’t find the things we need

 

Young man, said the old man

Let the youth in your heart be at rest

We may all be dead

In a year or a day

When the devil is put to the test …

 

The day of creation

Was our finest hour

It’s something we ought to defend

But it’s been so abused

Since the first day of light

That no glory can come in the end

 

Young man, cried the old man

There is victory in staying alive

And if you care so little

For the world we’re in

Why and what do you

Want to survive

 

Can’t we try

To let the past go by

With it’s lessons firmly

Settled in our minds

To our children one by one

And before the darkness comes

Let us leave a world full of light

Of a different kind

 

In truth they should meet

And with love

Their hearts should beat

And with patience

Solve the problems of our time

It wouldn’t be so hard to do

It’s only up to me and you

Let us not bequeath

A life that is a crime

 

Seen from the height

Of a thousand miles

The earth looks the same as it did

How is it we can fly faster than day

But we can’t find the things we need

 

Young man, cried the old man

Let the youth in your heart be at rest

We may all be dead

In a year or a day

When the devil is put to the test

 

Young man, cried the old man

Let the youth in your heart be at rest

We may all be dead

In a year or a day

When the devil is put to the test

 

Young man …
