Lyrics

BEFORE THE SEPARATION
Freebo, Bassline Music (BMI)
Robert Tepper, Heavy Breather Music (ASCAP)

VERSE 1:
Was it an illusion,
Back when I was young,
When everyone was living
On a promise?
In unity, in dignity,
Together, we were one,
Believing in the freedom
Of a dream.

VERSE 2:
Once upon a great frontier,
Not so long ago,
The hope of Man and Earth
Were so connected.
This beautiful Creation,
Here to help us grow,
Is watching as it slowly
Slips away.

CHORUS:
On this Carrousel of Madness,
On a horse to Kingdom Come,
I see our dream just melting
In the sun.
Won’t you take me back to Eden,
To a time when we were one,
Before the separation
Had begun.

VERSE 3:
For the ones who have the money,
And the many who have not,
The great divide grows wider
By the moment.
Equal opportunity
Doesn’t mean a lot
To the one who has to struggle
To get by.

CHORUS:
On this Carrousel of Madness,
On a horse to Kingdom Come,
I see our dream just melting
In the sun.
Won’t you take me back to Eden,
To a time when we were one,
Before the separation
Had begun.

BRIDGE:
Hiding in our lives,
We blindly close our eyes,
Safe, but not so sound,
No freedom to be found.

VERSE 4:
Now I will give my heart and soul,
Show undying faith,
Fighting for a cause
That I believe in.
Tactical delusions,
Lead me not astray,
For the voices of The Healing
Will survive.

CHORUS with Tag:
On this Carrousel of Madness,
On a horse to Kingdom Come,
I see our dream just melting
In the sun.
Won’t you take me back to Eden,
To a time when we were one,
Before the separation
Had begun.
Won’t you take me back to Eden,
To a time when we were one,
Before the separation
Had begun
