lyrics

In the void and the haze and the six long days
When the dark and the light went separate ways
Dark and light, noon and night
Man and woman, wrong and right
And the question came when it all was young
Fork in the road on a serpent’s tongue
And the question said: do you still want more?
Do you want whatever’s behind that door?

It’s always modern times
Always modern times
Every lucky day we fly
Our rocket to the other side
And don’t let go
‘Cause there isn’t far to go
Baby, close your eyes
Keep your hands inside

Came the rain and came the flood
Two by two in a river of mud
Two by two in a sea of love
Ocean covering all that was
And the walls came down
The walls came down
The waters parted and the men were drowned
And the sinners lost, the good ones saved
The unbelievers all enslaved

It’s always modern times
Always modern times
Every brand-new day we fly
Our rocket to the other side
And don’t be scared
Can’t you see we’re almost there?
Baby, close your eyes
Just let it all go by


And the crystal cars and the men from Mars
If they never did come, well they can’t be far
Gonna pack out things for a place we’re told
Top of the world where it still gets cold
And the water runs down, the water runs down
The sea came up where there once were towns
And you can’t go back, you don’t look back,
You never look back

It’s always modern times
Always modern times
Every precious day we fly
Our rocket to the other side
And don’t despair
Can’t you see we’re almost there?
Baby, close don’t you cry
Let it all go by

It’s always modern times
Always modern times
Always modern times
