lyrics

In a time quite long ago lived a boy who's deeds are often told
He devised this plan alone, to expediate the present be future thrown
So he packed his winter clothes, dug a pocket in the mountain and froze in snow

He awoke not far from here where the otters tried to twist his cunning ear
Yes he proved too smart for them, so my brothers our alliance became his friend
Timechild is on our side, would be prudent for the student of our steps to hide
Great secret he'll provide

Would you mind just sending me back?

Though his motives weren't often clear, the device he desired was worthless here
Tried to wail and he tried to moan and he tried to go home using the timephone
So raise your hands and make some noise, cause the battle of the future was fought for toys
It's just the way of boys

Would you mind just sending me back?
Find the time for sending me back

And when I'm done, release me to my time
When war is won, reverse this temporal crime
I've seen this world and all that lies in store
When battle comes, I hope the past is warned
