ONLY A MATTER OF TIME

 Remember the scent of roses rested on gravestones

Remember the sound of wisdom as it scorns adolescence

He passed long ago but his words supersede him

that desires and dreams don't create freedom


Oh my,

it's only a matter of time


Remember how it felt to witness those who were weeping 

Remember the strength of those who admit their weakness

Hear the roar of a thousand men breaking

Reached for a gun with no ammunition


Oh my, 

it's only a matter of time

Oh my, 

it's only a matter of time


Believing in magic I could almost believe in religion

Trying to deny logicwhile the skies disappearing

Through the constant flash of machines getting wiser

and the fear on our faces as we farewell our power


Oh my,

it's only a matter of time

Oh my,

it's only a matter of time

Oh my,

it's only a matter of time
