Kinks – Now And Then lyrics

In the beginning of it all there was the land
And the sea and the sky
And into the middle of it all there came man
To live on the land

And then a great nation
Put into operation an evolutionary plan
Now mighty corporations and politicians rule the land

Wish I could remember when
We were more innocent
Than all of those violent bitter men

The world was much younger then
But we were much wiser then
Before we were full of discontent

It's too bad the simple ways came sadly to an end
I guess that's the difference between now and then
In the beginning of it all there was the land

We were much younger then
But we were much wiser then
We never questioned why or when

One day we'll be born again
Our lovers and friends will remain
To live in a world without suffering and pain

And I can see a day when enemies are friends
And there'll be no distance between now and then
In the beginning of it all there was the land
