THOUSAND-YEAR MAN

I'm a thousand-year man
I have done what I can
But it's all been in vain
Here it comes once again
I'm a thousand-year man
I have infinite plans
To record all the scenes
That my single eye gleans

Father, I need you, can I come back home
I can sense the Fatherland beckon when I roam

I'm a thousand-year man
I returned when I ran
I computed my course
And returned to the source
I'm a thousand-year man
I was born in the Ban
Illegitimate birth
I'm expelled from the Earth

Mother, I hear you, can you see me, now
I can feel the Fatherland calling me somehow

I'm a thousand-year man
A mutation began
When I wish I could die
Well, instead, I just cry
I'm a thousand-year man
Everything's in a plan
That someone has set down
In a way so reknown

Brother, I need you, can I come back home
I can sense the Fatherland beckon when I roam

I'm a thousand-year man
I have done what I can
But it's all been in vain
Here it comes once again
I'm a thousand-year man
I have infinite plans
To record all the scenes
That my single eye gleans

Sister, I need you, can I come back home
I can sense the Fatherland beckon when I roam
