[1962]
Parole e musica di Agnes “Sis” Cunningham, cantautrice e fondatrice nel 1962 - insieme al marito Gordon Friesen - del Broadside Magazine.
Nel Broadside #8 del 30 giugno 1962.



Francamente eccessivo l’ottimismo utopistico della Cunningham all’inizio della “corsa allo spazio”… Solo nel 1962 furono 59 i lanci degli americani e 22 quelli dei sovietici…

Space race, 1962
Yesterday is gone, today is racing on and tomorrow rolls towards us
Like a wave upon the shore
And new generations will hold in their hands
A Freedom only dreamed of before.

For many hundred years paralyzed by fears
The minds of men shackled by the greed of other men
But now we are breaking the chains they have wrought
No longer are we bound by what has been.

For the Age of Space will be the Age of Peace
The greatest since history began
Men & women of all races working hand in hand
To create true Brotherhood ot Man

We're closing the final door to the horrors ot war
And no matter what trials on this earth have been ours
As the rocket ship is launched, so is the human power
To unlook the seorets ot the stars.

For the Age of Space will be the Age of Peace
The greatest since history began
Men & women of all races working hand in hand
To create true Brotherhood ot Man

In a world ot peace new energy released
For that creative life we have never know before
To grow and to love and to reach forever on
For we have a Universe to explore

For the Age of Space will be the Age of Peace
The greatest since history began
Men & women of all races working hand in hand
To create true Brotherhood ot Man
