Lyrics
Mankind was here
You can see the remnants of his tire tracks
Fading in the desert sand - where he once lived

Mankind was here
You can see the places where he drove his Cadillacs
First cleared by lumberjacks - both far and near

(Chorus):
And he loved what he saw in the grain of the land
And he took what he could with the strength of his hand
And he knows where it goes
Is it beyond his command to go slow?

And Man built
Great dams where the water spilled
Many holes into the Earth were drilled - where he once lived

And Man filled
River bottoms with a heavy silt
From the farmlands he plowed and tilled - both far and near

(Chorus)

And Man built
Great clocks in his city squares
Loading docks by the city piers - where he once lived

And Man lived
In the box of time he built
For the rocks he mined and milled - both far and near

Mankind was here
You can see the remnants of his tire tracks
Fading in the desert sand - where he once lived

And Man lived
In the box of time he built
For the rocks he mined and milled
Both far and near
