Old man sings the praises of the land where he was born
All alone he sees the changes and his world is tired and torn
By a fire seeking wisdom from the ghosts that still respond
To an audience of his echos in the hours before the dawn

In his mind flows wild rivers through a valley green with spring
He remembers ancient givers in the sacred words he sings
But old man's wisdom weakens as the young ones come of age
Scattered sons and daughters - drifting sand and change.

Can you feel the pain of hearts broken-travelers
Would you care to know the things I know before I go away?
I'm the last one of my time, they've left me here behind
And the world I knew is crumbling beheath the weight of you

All things fade away

Can you hear some distant rumble? Some say spiral lanes of change
It's a world of faceless people, see the monuments they made.
A race for magic, shiny things. Made with little bits of world.
They're tearing down the things we knew-did they have to take it all?

Can you feel the pain of hearts broken-travelers?
Would you care to know the things I know, before I go away?
I'm the last one of my time. They've left me here behind.
Now the world won't hear a whisper of my passing.

All things fade away
It's just a whisper of our passing
All things fade away
If you listen you could hear
All things fade away
Just a whisper of our passing
