  • At night - they will think they have seen the sunWhen they see the mad half pig manAt night - screams, battles seen fought in the skyAnd beasts will be heard to speak
    CHORUS
    Man, man your time is sandYour ways are lives upon the seaI am the Eyes of NostradamusAll your ways are known to me
    Driven back - the eagle back around the tentsWill be chased by the other birdsDriven back - with the sound of cymbals and bellsWill give sense to the senseless world
    CHORUS
    Think upon it - all of you who may read this verseListen and listen wellThink upon it - barbarians, idiots, fools stay far away
    CHORUS
    Oh, I had a dreamI thought I was aloneAnd the veil of all the yearsFell from my eyes like a stone
    From the ground the seven year childAnd a fire will come to the earthFrom the sky at forty-five degreesAnd the stone will crack with the force
    CHORUS
    Oh, I had a dreamI thought I was aloneAnd the veil of all the yearsFell from my eyes like a stone
