Watching in silence I hesitate,
It was not in the plan.
All of our lives we could only wait,
It was out of our hands.

And every war where we took the day,
It was all in our heads.
And though in the dark we dreamed at night,
They were better unsaid.

But this is the time.
And this is the place.
And these are the signs
That we must embrace.
The moment is now,
In all history.
The time has arrived
And this is the one place to be... yeah, yeah.

We placed our years in the hourglass,
They were never unearned.
And we seemed destined to watch them pass,
It was never our turn.

But this is the time.
And this is the place.
And these are the signs
That we must embrace.
The moment is now,
In all history.
The time has arrived
And this is the one place to be... yeah, yeah.

This is the time.
And this is the place.
And these are the signs
That we must embrace.
The moment is now,
In all history.
The time has arrived
And this is the one place to be... yeah, yeah.
