  • As if refused by father time
    My land can be found
    Under a clouded grey sky

    Walking the eternal landscapes
    As painted by our Flemish masters
    I hear the music
    Created centuries ago

    I listen to the northwind
    Losing myself in childlike dreams
    Watch the eternal rivers flow, they flow

    Maybe they understand
    My already lost quest

    For no one can travel
    Travel back in time
    For no one can travel
    Travel back in time
    Like a forgotten paradise
    A dream of perfect bliss
    Dust of centuries

    Yet I can touch the cities
    Build by my forefathers

    Yet I see the banners
    Of long forgotten pride
    And watch the eternal rivers flow

    Like a forgotten paradise
    As if refused by father time
    My land can be found
    Under a clouded grey sky

    Walking the eternal landscapes
    As painted by our masters
    I hear the music
    Created centuries ago

    I want to see a bright blue sky
    Or feel the rain of our darkest clouds
    Want to smell flowers now long withered
    Witness the people now long buried
    Wish to dwell in places forever lost
    Castles buried by time time and dust
    Hold a bride so pale and pure
    Hear the stories of friends
    I never knew

    Lost in time
    Lost in time

    Yet I can touch the cities
    Build by my forefathers
    Yet I see the banners
    Of long forgotten pride

    Walking the eternal Landscapes
    As painted by our masters
    I hear the music
    Created centuries ago

    Lost in time
