(chords only at the minute)

intro: G C-Bb, G C-Bb

One reported, long ago
No one heard and laughed as though
Ab                      E
It twas some product of mad man's minds
Not clear enough to cure the blind
And in all the corners of the globe
E                              Bb      Bb7
They'll shield their eyes from shining robes

G C-Bb, G C-Bb

Defying science, all the laws
The like of them not seen before
Ab                          E
Their gifts much worse than the three kings
Rewriting future, changing thoughts
And all the battles that we fought
E                    Bb       Bb7
Are these the devil, are they four?
