There was a time 

There was a time when men were kind 

When women were loving 

There was a time when the sun shined 

When the moon smiled 

There was a time when friends were real 

When family felt like family 

There was a time when strangers were distant 

When I was someone 

There was a time when work was easy 

When slavery was over 

There was a time when all turned black 

When darkness pervaded everything 

Then there was a time when the men became bastards 
When the women became whores 

There was a time when the sun imploded 

When the moon was shattered 

There was a time when friends left you for dead 

When my family became strangers 

There was a time when strangers were the only people to trust 

When I was no one 

There was a time when work was stressful 

When everyone became a slave 

There was a time when all stayed black 

When darkness became all 

That time is now
