Overture In Every Age

Overture In Every Age lyrics

Overture In Every Age

ANDREWS
In every age mankind attempts
To fabricate great works
At once magnificent
And impossible...

On desert sands, from mountains of stone
A pyramid!
From flying buttresses alone
A wall of light!
A chapel ceiling
Screaming one man's ecstasy!
One man's ecstasy...

Miracles them all!
China's endless wall...
Stonehenge, The Parthenon, The Duomo
The aqueducts of Rome

We did not attempt to make
With mammoth blocks of stone
A giant pyramid
No, not a pyramid...
Nor gothic walls that radiate with light...

Our task was to dream upon
And then create
A floating city!
Floating city!...

A human metropolis...
A complete civilization!
Sleek!
And fast!
At once a poem
And the perfection
Of physical engineering...

At once a poem
And the perfection
Of physical engineering...
