Leviathan

I watch minutes grow to hours
and how seasons build the ages
Every winter dies in sunlight only to be born again
And the rainfall feeds the forests
while the lightning strikes the trees
Turning giants into dust fertile ashes on the ground

I see them going down to the water
Where they embrace the silent waves
Slowly they're swallowed by the water
And their breath ascending to the sky
I see them now floating in the water
Carried away, carried away

I see wasteland turn into gardens
watching oceans giving birth
To fragile little creatures born to grow and multiply
And the children of the children of the
firstborn claims the land
Building fences for protection from their brothers' greedy grasp

I watch kingdoms rise and crumble
and the nations come and go
Only new names for the same things once
the limit has been reached
Now I see them lose their interest
in the deeds that have been done
And the wisdom that's been found as they return to whence they came



Lyrics: Joakim Montelius
