Our Defining Time

Looking back over a field of time
I see the depth of human kind
How we once lived, what we once believed
What will it take for us to see
It’s our defining time

That’s what we’re coming to in this world
That’s what we’re coming to in this world
We’ll show ‘em who we are
What we wanna be
It’s melded into our history
When we make the choice to be cruel or kind
In our defining time
Our defining time

How we treat a friend, how we treat a foe
Most of all, how our children grow
Do we pray for peace or choose to fight
Or run like thieves into the night
In our defining time

That’s what we’re coming to in this world
That’s what we’re coming to in this world
They’ll know who we are
What we wanna be
Our testament for the centuries
‘N Sitting on a fence is your conscience and mine
In our defining time
Our defining time

What makes us laugh, what makes us cry
Who we love and how we die
All shapes a cog in the bigger wheel
They’ll know we were here, we were real
In our defining time

That’s what we’re coming to in this world
That’s what we’re coming to in this world
That’s what we’re coming to in this world
Our defining time
Our defining time
Our defining time
