lyrics

Remembering a time when the land was less than barren
When columns and pillars filled the streets in which we Roamed
The cities and people known for miles were things of splendor
Though grew too large and crumbled under weight of their own rule
The bones of ancient dwellings cast upon the northern wind

The Humblest of Stones can have the greatest of Beginnings
Centuries of sand fill the beaches where we Dwell
When cultures of old start to give way and crumble
On wind and the sea are swept to spots away from home

Recanting of a time when on ocean man would travel
On backs of beasts with Dragons Heads to shores for gold to find
A quest for lands sustainable, a country which to thrive
By way of cloth and cross was the source of their undoing
and ashes of their kingdoms blow into the southern seas

The Humblest of Stones can have the greatest of Beginnings
Centuries of sand fill the beaches where we Dwell
When cultures of old start to give way and crumble
On wind and the sea are swept to spots far from home

Through Pebbles the history of man is givin mention
For keen of eye they can be a doorway to the past
The stones that fill our streets will one day fill another
As time goes on
