Well the sheaves have all been brought,
But the fields have washed away
And the palaces now stand
Where the coffins all were laid
And the times we see ahead
We must glaze with rosy hues
For we don't wish to admit
What it is we have to lose

Millenia in coming
The modern age is here
It sanctifies the future
Yet renders us with fear
So many theories, so many prophecies
What we do need is a change of ideas
When we are scared
We can hide in our reveries
But what we need is a change of ideas
Change of ideas, change of ideas
What we need now is a change of ideas

    General CommentI like this song, I totally agree with the lyrics..
    theories like 'the clash of cultures' are gaining more followers..This could lead to dangerous situations..
    We do need a change of ideas, to look to the world with an open mind, we don't need any theories to hide behind..
    I just wonder, if such a change will ever happen..

    General CommentMore than likely..it will not.

    I like the references to how we hide in our present situation instead of looking outside it and ourselves

    General CommentYeah, I agree. The worlds not headed to a very nice place. I just hope the general populace will get their act together and be more openminded.

    General Commentso basically, we need an open mind? "It sanctifies the future, yet renders us with fear." is a great line.

    General CommentI like how he mentions the new millenia, like we have to change with the times. This song will always be true, for everyone. We could all use a change of ideas, and I do me all of us.

    General CommentSongs funny coming from a man who believes Darwin is truth Lets take a look at Piltdown man These Neodarwinists have to grab or make up their science to fit their beliefs. This dude is one sad asshole, But real good a propaganda, I'll give him that.He's always changing ideas because holes keep getting holes shot in all of his. Doesn't deal much in truth.
