The Folly of the Young

(Praveen Vava)

This song tries to capture the ruthless nature of time, and how the young never heed and use the wisdom earned by posterity, finally coming to see that what they're done is just come around full circle.

Bringing the waves crashing on the rocks The changing phase, the changing tide Breaking its stubbornness gently mocks As it unearths what eons have tried to hide. Time changes all But never come full circle No matter how high you build the wall Time ravages all, there are no miracles The wisdom of the old Worth its weight in gold Useless is it found For to no one is it bound, heeds no one to it, No matter how loudly its sung The confidence, the arrogance, the pride Oh the folly of the young.
