"This Is The Time" as written by Isaac Delahaye, Mark Jansen, Simone Simons (music), Mark Jansen (lyrics)....
This is the time
We waited too long
And I am wondering
Were I belong
We have lust
Were out of control
When we fail
Nature speaks to us all

This is the time
I tell you why
The worlds left alone
Now's the time
To make right what's wrong
We have lust
Were out of control
If we stray can we hear nature's call
When we fail
Nature speaks to us all
This is the time

So what's the world to be
Just a luxury, a temporary sea
But have we got when it's gone away?
And we need to come to see
What the earth should be
A sanctuary free
A renewed paradise, still alive

This is the time
The sky and the sea
We speak the burdens
We planted the seed
We have lust
Were out of control
If we stray can we hear nature's call
When we fail
Nature speaks to us all
This is the time

So what's the world to be
Just a luxury, a temporary sea
But have we got when it's gone away?
And we need to come to see
What the earth should be
A sanctuary free
All that we've sacrificed
In the end has it's price
A renewed paradise, still alive in your eyes

This is the time
So what's the world to be
Just a luxury, a temporary sea
But have we got when it's gone away?
And we need to come to see
What the earth should be
A sanctuary free
All that we've sacrificed
In the end has it's price
A renewed paradise, still alive in your eyes
It's still alive in our eyes

    General CommentThe meaning is faily obvious. Epica is saying that this is the time to change the way humans live and be more intuned to nature. They also make a good point in saying that were destoying the earth and then once we do that there's nothing left. Beautiful song with powerful lyrics.

    General CommentIt's about the Earth and animals and how we destroy it. Some people don't like this song because it's nothing like their other ones, but even though it really is different, I still love it, and it's a very beautiful song. Simone's voice is so amazing!
