NOSTRADAMUS (Al Stewart/Kenetic Productions)

 

 

 

In the east the wind is blowing all the boats across the sea
And their sails they fill the morning and their cries ring out to me

Oh, the more it changes, the more it stays the same
And the hand just re-arranges all the players in the game

 

Oh, I had a dream, It seemed I stood alone
And the veil of the ages, It came sinking from my eyes like a stone

 

A King shall fall and put to death by the English parliament shall be
Fire and plague to London come in the year of six and twenties three
An emperor of France shall rise who shall be born near Italy
His reign will cost his empire dear, Napoloron his name shall be

 

From Castile shall Franco come and the Government driven out shall be
An English king who seeks divorce, and from his throne cast out is he
One named Hister shall become captain of Greater Germanie
No law does this man observe and bloody his rise and fall shall be

 

Chorus

Man, man, your time is sand, your ways are leaves upon the sea
I am the eyes of Nostradamus, all your ways are known to me

 

In the new lands of America three brothers now shall come to power
Two alone are born to rule but all must die before their hour
Two great men yet brothers not, shall make the north united stand
Its power shall be seen to grow, and fear possess the eastern lands

 

Three leagues from the gates of Rome

A Pope named Paul is doomed to die
A great wall that divides a city at this time is cast aside

 

These are the signs I bring to you
To show you when your time is nigh

 

Man, man, your time is sand, your ways are leaves upon the sea
I am the eyes of Nostradamus, all your ways are known to me

Man, man, your time is sand, your ways are leaves upon the sea
I am the eyes of Nostradamus, all your ways are known to me
