Original Broadway Cast lyrics : "The Past Is Another Land"

You know nothing about me
And care even less
How could you understand our emptiness?


You plundered our wisdom, our knowledge, our wealth
In bleeding us dry you long for our spirit

But that you will never possess

The past is now another land

Far beyond my reach
Invaded by insidious
Foreign bodies, foreign speech

With the timeless joys of childhood
Lie broken on the beach


The present is an empty space
Between the good and bad
A moment leading nowhere

Too pointless to be sad
But time enough to lay to waste
Every certainty I had


The future is a baren world
From which I can't return

Both hopless and material
It's retched spoils not my concern


Shinning like an evil sun
As my childhood treasures burn
Shinning like an evil sun

As my childhood treasures burn
