Times Times Times Los Tiempos Los Tiempos Los Tiempos

Time, Time, Time,

Times when people lived in darkness,

Times when people roamed the wild,

Times when people savagely hunted,

An eye for an eye,

A tooth for a tooth,

Now only bones remain,

World treasures behind glass casings,

Each one reclaiming what was stolen,

Never returned.

Times when nature was our medicine,

The elements and spices,

Aromas and essences,

The fruitful discovery,

Petals, berries, leaves,

Sticks and gems,

Now the very medicine,

Under attack, as crops,

Natural resources waste away,

Burnt by the sun, frozen by the cold,

Drowned by the tsunamis and hurricanes.

Times when the ocean was a gift,

A holiday and escape to paradise,

As the children built castles in the sand,

Played with the pebbles making ripples,

Enjoy the seagulls, pelicans as they watched them dive,

The creatures great and small,

The multi-coloured fishes,

Corals and hidden patterns of the past,

Buried below the oceans.

Times when the rivers were allowed to breathe,

As the child cups his hands to refresh,

His thirst, to wash away the dust,

Revitalise his eyes,

Smooth the heat of a laborious day,

Now we watch them drink poison,

Bathe in muddy rivers,

Die from incredible illness.

Where did the time go?

Times, times, times.

Tiempo, Tiempo, Tiempo,

Tiempos cuando la gente vivía en la oscuridad,

Tiempos cuando la gente vagaba por lo salvaje,

Tiempos en que la gente cazaba salvajemente,

Ojo por ojo,

Diente por diente,

Ahora solo quedan los huesos,

Tesoros del mundo detrás de las cubiertas de vidrio,

Cada uno en reclamar lo que fue robado, Nunca regresaron.

 

Tiempos en que la naturaleza era nuestra medicina.

Los elementos y especias,

Aromas y esencias,

El descubrimiento fructífero,

Pétalos, bayas, hojas,

Palos y gemas,

Ahora la misma medicina,

Bajo ataque, como cultivos,

Los recursos naturales se desperdician,

Quemado por el sol, congelado por el frío,

Ahogado por los tsunamis y huracanes.

Tiempos cuando el océano era un regalo,

Unas vacaciones y escapar al paraíso.

Como los niños construían castillos en la arena,

Jugando con los guijarros haciendo ondulaciones,

Disfrutando de las gaviotas, pelícanos mientras los observaban bucear,

Las criaturas grandes y pequeñas,

Los peces multicolores,

Corales y patrones ocultos del pasado, Enterrado bajo los océanos.

Tiempos en que los ríos podían respirar,

Mientras el niño toma sus manos para refrescarse,

Su sed, para quitar el polvo,

Revitalizar sus ojos,

Suaviza el calor de un día laborioso,

Ahora los vemos bebiendo veneno,

Bañandose en ríos fangosos,

Moriiendo de una enfermedad increíble. ¿Donde se fue el tiempo?

Los tiempos, los tiempos, los tiempos.
