back to the one time in space
back to the first place
when the orbits and lights
shimmered true to
the spin of the world
back to the tilt and angle
back to the former design, the mind
you were king
and all the planets aligned

back to the shape of things before
kingdoms all rise and fall
along ancient shores, yeah
before we built the walls
you made the way before
we dropped the bomb
dropped the bomb
before hate love was law,
life, everything
and you were king

you are the mystic man
you are the promised land
you walk the silver sand
of stars you're shining
you are the atmosphere
you are the music clear
you are the golden tier
and you are king planet

we ride the wave, feel the force
in fake course
we taste the floors
from the cup we dream color
insidious drop
one taste and you don't stop
for planet save
that we dropped the bomb
dropped the bomb
now centuries late, law is hate
we wait for kingdom come!

bring back the tilt and angle
bring back the former design
the time you were king
and all the planets aligned
