lyrics

Spin on, stars, and dance your passing pirouettes,
Spring, sweet Selene, we praise your phases met.
Stay, stark Sun, and still your standing silhouettes,
And join your kin, the signs that wax and wane and set

See below, the globe that holds our lives and loves,
Roots of stone and iron, but fragile as a dove
The glowing ark we owe our journeys through the rough,
A million miles an hour, but only from above

And though the ages go,
From where you stare an eon is a
Day, to us below,
Eternity’s a life to make, ‘cause

Time waits for no man,
It rusts and it consumes,
Expresses all the entropy that grows, and so we
Fight, fight while we can
Resist the rising dark
Soon all things will fall,
And all we made will fade to Time.

Go, far globes, your whirling twirls above our heads,
Hold your glow within that darkened firmament
A million trillion miles your lonely show has sped
And, spied by eyes, a light that long ago had fled

And though our sight is slow,
You guide us through the dark’ning to the
Day, you stand aglow,
Eternity is just a wake, ‘cause

Time waits for no man,
It rusts and it consumes,
Expresses all the entropy that grows, and so we
Fight, fight while we can
Resist the rising dark
Soon all things will fall,
And all we made will fade to Time.

And though the seconds go,
In glass they pass through ev’ry single
Day, one thing I know:
Tomorrow’s coming just the same, cause

Time waits for no man,
It rusts and it consumes,
Expresses all the entropy that grows, and so we
Fight, fight while we can
Resist the rising dark
Soon all things will fall,
And will fail…

Time waits for no man
It rushes ever on
The stars one day will fall.
Though with our precious life we
Climb, climb as we may,
And shine our light today,
We light the world
And stay the stars
Before we pass through Time.
