The rebel cry of desolation
To which we used to hearken
Echoes now in isolation
As the skies in fury darken

A thousand acts of desecration
Hundreds more continue
When y'know that you are all creation
You're gonna fight 'em with all that's in you

I remember time gone by
When peace and hope and dreams were high
We followed inner visions and touched the sky
Now we who still believe, won't let them die

Waters dammed to overflowing
Like tears brimming over in our eyes
Sometimes it's so hard to keep on going
When promises turn to lies

Go ahead, give in to confusion
And put aside your ideals too
Soon you'll see only illusion
Don't care who's hurt, as long as it's not you

I remember time gone by
When peace and hope and dreams were high
We followed inner visions and touched the sky
Now we who still believe, won't let them die

Sometimes a leader emerges
And is followed for awhile
Doesn't matter what he encourages
As long as he's got style

Young ones conceived in a passion
Of directions we thought enlightened
Grown-up, they follow the mood in fashion
But beneath their bravado, you know they're frightened

I remember time gone by
When peace and hope and dreams were high
We followed inner visions and touched the sky
Now we who still believe, won't let them die
