"The Time Has Come" as written by John Farnham, Ross Fraser and Joe Creighton....
John farnham, phil buckle, and ross fraser

The tale is told, of a mighty land
Great tempest ocean, shifting sand
Of an ancient lore, in tribal might

After an age, of harmony
Came a reign, based on greed
They say that all roads lead to rome

But now it's changing
Now the time has come

So spare your heart, bare your breast
For the light that fades, into the west
Once more shall rise, as glory dawns

    My InterpretationI think this song is about the rise of the west and how it effected the native tribes of the all lands (but perhaps more specifically Australia because he's Australian). This is actually a song of hope because it sings of 'The Time Has Come' for change; change is coming; the tides are turning.

    The song makes mention of "all roads lead to Rome, but now it's changing". What I get from this is that the culture of greed is fading and people are starting to wake up to the damage that it causes and how little happiness it brings. The "reign based on greed", is to be replaced by glory and the tribes are rising up again, we are starting to see the value of the tribal way and a more pure existence.
