Thousands of years I was watching
Over the plains and the sands
Eternal smile on my lips
I was announcing peace
With unassuming grace
While people looked up to me

Then came a faith
Raping all signs
All in its way

You can erase a thing of worth
While you can’t cast out its truth
You can negate and violate all over again
You can collapse an icon and wipe out its light
But you cannot erase the one eternal smile

Hundreds of years on an old shelf
Knowledge and culture preserved
In a word some won’t ever conceive

Then came a hidebound hand
Raping the deathless page
It happens every day

You can erase a word of truth
While you can’t cast out its worth
You can negate and violate all over again
You can collapse a bright star and wipe out its light
But you cannot erase the one eternal word

You can erase a word of truth
While you can’t cast out its truth
You can negate and violate all over again
You can collapse a bright star and wipe out its light
But you cannot erase the one eternal smile
