"After One Thousand Years"

To the song "Two Thousand Years" by Billy Noel,
Lyrics by Batya "The Toon" Levin

In the beginning
There was the stone and the night
We were awakened
Once more alive and in flight
Man was triumphant
We were alone in the sky
All of our clan had died in time gone by

Too many centuries
Too much to learn right away
So many changes
So much has passed since that day
Time is relentless
But humankind perseveres
And now we wake to the setting sun
After one thousand years

Here for a reason
Here at the crossroads of time
Oberons children
Tampered with fate down the line
They caused our troubles
But by their meddling we live
Hasn't the pain been sufficient to forgive?

Sometimes I wonder
Why we are 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 finish what was begun
After one thousand years?

There have been miracles
All through this long winter's tale
Science and sorcery
Somehow the right will prevail
Princes and mages
Gave us the power to see
What an amazing future there could be

And in the evening
After the fire and the flight
One thing is certain
Nothing will hold back the night
Time is relentless
And as the past diappears
We know our long fight is done
After one
Thousand years
