The Lost Cycle

This song is by Rick Wakeman and appears on the album No Earthly Connection (1976).

The spaceman came from time unknown
His knowledge way ahead of man
To seek the cycle starting here
The evolution plan.

Each day he watched the world evolve
Eternal life for him to prove
Watching man grow powerful
Detroying life with every move.

The spaceman's world a burning mass
Destroyed by his own kind
A sole survivor lost in space
A growing world must find.

He saw the birth of hate and war
Of death before our life was born
With human fear, the spaceman saw
And changed from human form.

His voyage led back to Nemo's world
A peaceful start of human form
He knew one day he'd leave again
To witness other planet's born.

He watches helpless, tearful,
As the world embittered grows
Moving closer to the end of earth
The spaceman only knows.

The spaceman only knows the truth
He's seen it from eternal youth
Man will always die.
