I was about fifteen
I was walking the beach
I was racing the wave
It knocked me off my feet

I fell into the tide
It spat me back on the sand
I laughed without a clue
How lucky I was to land


It's been a long long time
Since my life was spared
It's been a long long time
But I'm still not scared


It was the dawn of man
I held the bone in my hand
I was as hungry as death
Wandering through the sand

I met a wild boar
My bone came down the a crack
I tasted flesh and blood
And swore I'd never look back


It's been a long long time
But I had just begun
It's been a long long time
Out in the African sun

It's been a long long time
Since I learned that skill
It's been a long long time
Since my very first kill


If anyone is out there to see what we have done
Can somebody tell me what we are to become?
Our tiny lives
They fly right by
This godly frame
It does not care
If we live or die


It was the month of June
In Tienanmen Square
The tanks were on TV
But I was not yet there

The guns they all went "pop"
We heard the screams and shouts
I was brought into this world
As they were taken out


It's been a long long time
So many people to mourn
It's been a long long time
Since the day I was born

It's been a long long time
And yet no time at all
It's been a long long time
And yet no time at all


If anyone is out there to see what I have done
Can somebody tell me what I am to become?
Our tiny lives
They fly right by
Who were they?
And next to them
Who the hell am I?
