Lyrics:

There's a moment yet to come
When we'll learn to live as one
Every second in the sun
Will be wonderful

Spoke the poet and the priest
"They will rise among the least"
It was wisdom from the east
Kept you comfortable

Now the highs are looking low
For the people that you know
Selling tickets to the show
That never opened up

For today you're not so sure
What you're really waiting for
With your face slammed in the door
Of Utopia

There was time enough at last
You discarded all the past
We remolded in the cast
Of our victory

With the future full of light
We would rage against the night
Ever certain of the right
Side of history

Now the skies are looking gray
For the weary castaway
Feel the waters of the bay
Crashing over ya

While you wander like a ghost
With the ones you missed the most
When you washed upon the coast
Of Utopia

Time wasted
I've tasted
One too many tongues in my life

Ideals
So real
One push and we fall on the knife

Love is not enough for you
It's a point of view
It's a program

Years in the dark are alright
And you won't catch the sight
Of your own sham
