This you know, the years travel fast. And time after time, I've done the Tell. But this ain't one 'body's Tell. It's the Tell of us all. And you gotta listen it, and 'member, 'cuz what you hears today, you gotta tell the newborn tomorrow. I was lookin' behind us now. Into history, back. I see those of us that got the luck and started the haul for home. And I 'members how it led us here and how we was heartful 'cuz we'd seen what there once was. One look, and we knew we'd got it straight. Those who had gone before had the knowin' and doin' of things beyond our reckonin'. Even beyond our dreamin'.
Time counts and keeps countin'. And we knows now, finding the trick of what's being and lost ain't no easy ride. But that's our track. We gotta travel it, and there ain't nobody knows where it's gonna lead. Still, in all, every night we does the Tell, so that we 'member who we was, and where we came from. But most of all, we 'members the man who finded us, him that came the salvage. And we lights the city, not just for him, but for all of them that are still out there, 'cuz we knows, there'll come a night when they sees the distant light, and they'll be comin' home.
Coming soon: the Future!
Tomorrow will be awesome: you'll see!
