    Lyrics:
    Way back in time before memories




    We lived in the fields of our birth
    We nurtured the soil and the forests and trees
    In return we lived off the earth

    What is seen is not all there is
    There are two realms intertwined
    A spiritual world just out of sight
    But rarely far from mind

    Closer still when the solstice came




    Along ley lines and cairns of power
    The mysteries of the spirit world, came abroad for barely an hour




    Brief shadows seen and the legends grew
    A little perspective of our place in this scene
    The balance of nature and spirit life
    Respect for the space in-between

    When the twilight comes and the worlds collide




    That boundary between death and dark and life and light
    The green man glimpsed in his ancient home
    Out of the corner of the eye just out of sight
    The green man

    And now the chainsaws scream out their songs of hate




    Commuters their willing slaves
    The cranes they'll run up a pirate's flag,
    The bulldozers dig their unmarked graves

    Shrines to money's indifference
    It's gone further than anyone planned
    Profit runs without boundaries
    Spewing out concrete covering this land

    When the twilight comes and the worlds collide
    There's nowhere left to roam




    The green man cries from a far-off wood
    Remembering his long-lost home
    The green man

    A wise man once prophesied to me




    That we'll rip up the roads and tear the buildings down
    The forests will grow green and the streams will run clear
    There'll be healing and harmony all around

    When the twilight comes and the worlds collide




    There might be just enough space to roam




    The green man can be glimpsed in a far-off wood
    Walking back through his long-lost home
    The green man Show less
