From the album Impulse to Dream

Lyrics

Out of the Past

Let us arrive here and now, the past is over, we can’t fight for the truth
Everyone, each of us, has our own belief we’ve learned since our youth
Not one of us knows the future and we can just argue the past
But, this divides, I’m right, you’re wrong, how long are we going to let it all last?

Out of the past and into the now
We will succeed when to each we empower
Out of the past and into today
The future is ours to reclaim

Open to all truths, being truth, we can’t prove them anyway
There’s no guarantee of what is to come and there’s no proof what went down yesterday
We can’t grasp it, we can’t hold it, the past is just a memory
And we all know all too well how foggy our memories can be.

Out of the past and into the now
We will succeed when to each we empower
Out of the past and into today
The future is ours to reclaim

Did he die on the cross, or did he rise, is he our King Selassie
Is he Christ reborn we will never truly know, lets not push this message like it’s the only one
This was your land, but now its mine, you know we lost two cultures at the same time
What is done is done, we have to work from here, one people with one giant land to share

Out of the past and into the now
We will succeed when to each we empower
Out of the past and into today
The future is ours to reclaim

Did he die on the cross, or did he rise, is he our King Selassie?
