Lyrics

THE PAST CAN NEVER BE DEFEATED

 

the light in dark will disappear 

old friends will leave and not return 

the years roll round but have no fear 

someday the sun will cease to burn 

 

ashes to ashes dust to dust 

alive a moment much too quick 

the giant engines turn to rust 

the clocks go tick tick tick tick tick 

 

the past can never be defeated 

the past can never be defeated 

the past can never be defeated 

the past can only be repeated 

 

 

and still you stuggle with the rock 

to roll it up the endless hill 

there are no hands upon the clock 

the eagles circle for the kill 

 

and memory will wage a war 

to seize your heart and take control 

so nothing new survives forever 

every dream at last gets old 

 

the past can never be defeated 

the past can never be defeated 

the past can never be defeated 

the past can only be repeated 

 

 

it's easy to say that nothing matters 

nothing to win and nothing to lose 

you may say I'm mad as a hatter 

but whether or not, you still gotta choose 

 

the past can never be defeated 

the dead in graves refuse to lie 

the past can only be repeated 

and death itself can never die 

 

the past can never be defeated 

the past can never be defeated 

the past can never be defeated 

the past can only be repeated
