As daybreak breaks the mist upon the earth
It came to pass that beauty settled there forever more
And as the steam clings close to things to come
It came to pass that solid rock did part for humble life

Once upon a time there was confusion
Disappointment, fear and disillusion
Now theres hope reborn with every morning
See the future clearly at its dawning
Forever drifting slowly towards a hazy emptiness
Whilst water slips into the sea
The fathers sad to see its free

As shadows creep towards their master night
It came to pass that trees defied the wind who shook their leaves
And as the peace descended all around
It came to pass that natures creatures came to face the world

Once upon a time there was confusion
Disappointment, fear and disillusion
Now theres hope reborn with every morning
See the future clearly at its dawning
Forever drifting slowly towards a hazy emptiness
Whilst water slips into the sea
The fathers sad to see its free

Once upon a time there was confusion
Disappointment, fear and disillusion
Now theres hope reborn with every morning
See the future clearly at its dawning

Once upon a time there was confusion
Disappointment, fear and disillusion
