Lyrics

[Instrumental Intro] [Chorus 1] Watcher of the skies, watcher of all His is a world alone, no world is his own He whom life can no longer surprise Raising his eyes, beholds a planet unknown [Verse 1] Creatures shaped this planet's soil Now their reign has come to end Has life again destroyed life? Do they play elsewhere? Do they know more than their childhood games? [Chorus 2] Maybe the lizard's shed its tail This is the end of man's long union with Earth [Chorus 3] Judge not this race by empty remains Do you judge God by his creatures When they are dead? For now, the lizard's shed its tail This is the end of man's long union with Earth [Verse 2] From life alone to life as one Think not now your journey's done For though your ship be sturdy No mercy has the sea Will you survive on the ocean of being? [Chorus 4] Come ancient children, hear what I say This is my parting counsel for you on your way [Chorus 5] Sadly now, your thoughts turn to the stars Where we have gone You know you never can go Watcher of the skies, watcher of all This is your fate alone, this fate is your own [Instrumental Outro]
