"Time Immemorial" as written by and Marketa Irglova....
Wounded soldier, rest a while
In this house, you're safe from harm
Let the war fight itself
Don't be alarmed
Though I wear a uniform of your army's enemy
I am no enemy to you

We didn't start this war nor the one before
All we've ever wanted was to live in peace

War is the mindset of those threatened
By the thought of losing power and control
Don't you see we have been our worst enemy?
But you and I have minds of our own
We can choose to disengage from the collective misperception
Of the kind of war that's being waged here
We're living in fear

Life like a stream running through
The many hills and plains of landscape you
To meet the greater body of the sea
There, not diminished but built upon
It returns itself to where it came from
So it can be with you and me

We are the heart and soul of our greater whole
All we've ever wanted was to come home to ourselves

Since time immemorial, there's been conflict and war
Each new one greater than the one before
Don't you see we have been our sole enemy?
But you and I can break the circle
We don't have to feed the flames
Pointing fingers, blaming others
We are all to blame around here
For living in fear
