Original video
In the beginning
There was the cold and the night
Prophets and angels
Gave us the fire and the light

Man was triumphant
Armed with the faith and the will
That even the darkest ages couldn't kill

Too many kingdoms
Too many flags on the field
So many battles
So many wounds to be healed

Time is relentless
Only true love perseveres
It's been a long time and now I'm with you
After two thousand years

This is our moment
Here at the crossroads of time
We hope our children
Carry our dreams down the line

They are the vintage
What kind of life will they live?
Is this a curse or a blessing that we give?

Sometimes I wonder
Why are we so blind to fate?
Without compassion
There can be no end to hate

No end to sorrow
Caused by the same endless fears
Why can't we learn from all we've been through
After two thousand years?

There will be miracles
After the last war is won
Science and poetry
Rule in the new world to come

Prophets and angels
Gave us the power to see
What an amazing future there will be

And in the evening
After the fire and the light
One thing is certain
Nothing can hold back the night

Time is relentless
And as the past disappears
We're on the verge of all things new
We are two thousand years
