30 Day Song Challenge #19

Day 19: A song that makes you think about life.

Savatage — This Is the Time (1990)

It was the year of nineteen-ninety
And the Berlin wall was down
And a thousand years regretted
Now laid buried in the ground

And the prophets read the future
And the omens all seemed kind
In the classic world of Dickens
It surely was, the best of times


We placed our years in the hourglass
They were never unearned
And we seemed destined to watch them pass
It was never our turn

But this is the time
And this is the place
And these are the signs that we must embrace
The moment is now
In all history
The time has arrived
And this is the one place to be
