Ayesha:
We live a life cocooned
Sheltered from the glaring gaze of outside nations
So tell me of your world
My mind is overflowing with such questions

Holly:
I am your servant
I only ask that in return you look to my friend

Ayesha:
Then offer me your insight
The human race as through your eyes
And I will trend to him

Holly:
In many ways so much has happened
Since you started here
Armies march across the sand
Explorers sail to foreign lands
How could I describe the vital impact
Of each passing year?
Wars are fought and peace is made
Power comes and power fades

Egypt is still standing
But changing all the while
The Persians and the Romans
Have held sway upon the Nile
But Empires come and go
They arrive then take their leave
Falling victim to corruption
And blinded by their greed

History is written by victorious and driven people
Cities rise and fall again to conquerors and mighty heroes
Time has watched to wonder
At the colours of an ever-changing world

In many ways so much has happened
In two thousand years
Strange inventions fill our lives
A testament to changing times
Then a leader walks amongst us
But his motives are unclear
Until he turns upon his friends
Committing crimes beyond defense

Philosophies and politics
Bring different kinds of status
The works of famous authors
The visions of the painter
And sounds have been created
Beyond anything you know
Bringing beauty to the mind
As it feeds the human soul
The thunder of an orchestra
A sensual crescendo
Of melody and harmony
A constant ebb and flow

History is written by victorious and driven people
Cities rise and fall again to conquerors and mighty heroes
Time has watched to wonder
At the colours of an ever-changing world

History runs in circles
And it's out of our control
Every battle mankind wins
There's a consequence to take its toll
We may think we're modern
But however thing appear
At heart we have not changed at all
In these two thousand years

History is written by victorious and driven people
Cities rise and fall again to conquerors and mighty heroes
Time has watched to wonder
At the colours of an ever-changing world
