From the pyramids to the petrol age
And did DaVinci dream of man in space
When did Nero know that Rome would fall
And the search lights crossing on that crumbling wall.

From when one man walked to when he walks again
Troubles travelled in the shadows of men
Strains of thunder stretched across the globe
Until death comes wandering in scarlet robed.

You steal down the rainbow
You steal down the rainbow
Get you ready for the light show.

From the colosseum to the carnival
From the dinosaurs have we come so far
And how we constant struggle with the powers of mind
To a fainter heartbeat now we’re marching time.

From the first man’s love to the last man’s war
Will those light years find that invisible star
Tears are falling are of cyanide
In lost remembrance from eternities skies.

And you steal down the rainbow
You steal down the rainbow
Get you ready for the light show.
Get you ready for the light show.
