Lyrics
In the beginning of it all there was the land
And the sea and she sky
Then 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.
