Stars Coloured streets of empty neon light Stars Make the dark a long lonely night Stars Trading stars for solitude tonight That’s the way I feel right now And I will fly Stars Hold your head up when you fall tonight Know your dreams are drifting into light Stars Trading stars for solitude tonight That’s the way it feels this time And I will fly Stars All the way this time we won’t stop Until the last of us are off the chopping block Stars Trading stars for solitude tonight All the water flows back inside And I will fly Some you win Some you take Some are just for dreaming

You were brave, you were brave Fought lights that kept on falling And I just want to say, it was brave Feeling brave But I just wanna tell you And I just want to say Time, what is time? It’s something that just grabs you And leaves it all behind In its wake, in its wake Between the far horizons And the shores you leave behind And as you stand, the wind in your hair You look into the night Hang your head in the edge of the storm; You hear the children cry And everybody seems to be yelling But you can’t you see the words are all the same? We sailed away… Now, what is now? Well I can’t even tell you, Got to work it out somehow Days, all these days Just creep beneath the surface To smack you in the face Tides, hear the tides Just moving back and forwards To wash you out tonight Night, in the night Just stumble through the darkness And don’t you look behind And did you want to see me? Well I see you all the time I’m hanging on in edge of the storm I cling on for my life Now I can’t hear the words But I see it clearly all the same We sailed away… We’re only laughing or crying, That’s what you always say Don’t tear your face from the tears in your eyes The years can fade away And now you say you seek solitude Finally you hear the whispers say We sailed away, on a fateful day

She, she came to me She took my hand, within a dream She took me far, far away into the brightest light I've ever seen Far, far away, Celestine She, she spread her wings She cut my cord, to earthly things She flew me high above into a blissful void I've never been High, high above, Celestine She, she called me home She left me changed, but not alone She left a flame in my soul that will ever-burn my sorrows clean Flame in my soul, Celestine

The light before was always brighter The light before was something new The light before had all the answers The light before was all we knew The light before would run forever The light before would always shine The light before had always been there The light before gave so much time The light before was fading slowly The light before was passing through The light before now shines forever Lighting everything we do

Once again we have to say "Good Bye" And once again I´m gonna miss your, miss your smile Once again our time flew by too fast And once again the bliss just couldn´t last Once again "check-in" comes much too soon And memories are the gift that's in my bag The light fades from my eyes as the plane turns west To a place I once called home ... once called home Never breaking apart We're like children guarding a spark You're the light in my heart Never breaking apart You're the candle that shines in the dark Never breaking apart The working week I suffer in a daze Can't hardly wait for the week-end to come around To take the east-bound flight .... back into your arms To the place I now call home ... you're my home Never breaking apart We're like children guarding a spark You're the light in my heart Never breaking apart You're the candle that shines in the dark Never breaking apart Breaking apart Breaking apart Whenever you hold me The world stops to turn Whenever you kiss me The deeper I fall Deeper I fall (in love) Deeper I fall (in love ... with you)

I cannot remember how I got inside. What is my mission? There is a sky above me and a flame aside. I feel that I am rising. I am flying slowly looking on the ground. I can be free. I see crowds of robots walking all around in the prison of dreams. I can spot the details in the warren space as I am passing high People are devices ordered to survive in the modern world. When I see them struggling for existence now, the balloon is trembling. When I hear them shouting, devastating faith, I don’t want to land there. They can’t find philosophy. Their brain is not alive – it’s artificial. They respect stupidity, can’t discover lies. They feel no fear. They feel no fear. When I see them struggling for existence now, the balloon is trembling. When I hear them shouting, devastating faith, I don’t want to land there. No! Suddenly the sunset stops the crowds below. They are so excited that they can’t walk. They can see the light there that differentiates between good and evil, good and evil. I don’t want to come back. It’s so beautiful. They can’t even say a thing. Can I fly? Keep it on. For another fortune, I discover facts. I don’t want to be there, so let me escape! When I see them struggling for existence now, the balloon is trembling. When I hear them shouting, devastating faith, I don’t want to land there. When I see them struggling… Yes, I do. When I hear them shouting … I cannot remember how I got inside. What is my mission? There is a sky above me and a flame aside. I feel that I am rising.

The picture frame on the bedside table Holds a secret we cannot reveal We don’t need to go through it all again But if you want to know I’ll tell you how I feel This is how I feel I stopped asking the same old questions But it may be hard to recover from that dream I gave up believing - It’s a made up reality Your concerns don’t go further than a coffee with no cream I’m feeling tired and wishing for the day to end I can’t wait to see that smile again I used to keep my hopes under my hat If only they knew what’s coming after the bend The first cut put me down. I knew it would. The second one came sooner. it took me by surprise. The third one cut me deep. the scar still hurt. But I’m stronger now So many dreams interrupted for no reason I tried to sell mine but no one wanted to buy I still have my notes listing things I’d like to do We don’t realise - let’s face it - time flies It’s a made up reality The first cut put me down. I knew it would. The second one came sooner. It took me by surprise. The third one cut me deep. The scar still hurt. But I’m stronger now.

So confused Hearing the news. Feeling abused... And it goes on and on and on... Capital crime Robbing us blind We’re falling behind And it goes on and on and on... Maybe the last chance to do or die? Could be a last chance to wonder why? Maybe a last chance to open our eyes? Could be the last chance to say goodbye? Vacant view With nothing to do So lost with you And it goes on and on and on It’s time to choose Reject the ruse We’ve got nothing to lose And it goes on and on and on… And it goes on and on and on… “We must never ever let the NHS free from our grasp. Because if we do, your future will be my past” -Harry Leslie Smith- Together, together… Only we can change this fate Together, together… A million voices bearing reign Together, together… Can’t drown the sound for our future state Together, forever … Our lives and health, we must sustain.

The grass was green and soft The blowing breeze was fresh With clouds watching me All my worries were long gone But suddenly a big noise woke me up And brought me back to hell I could hear people screaming I could hear children crying There were buildings collapsing and someone asking for help So off I went I left my place To offer help to those who were in need The whole thing had began and the bloody game was on But nobody asked to be part of it "By this time the other blind inmates are fleeing in terror towards the smoke-filled corridors. FIRE ! They are shouting." "Obviously, many of these blind inmates are being trampled under foot, pushed, jostled, this is the effect of panic. A natural effect." Another bang took place It came from somewhere else When I found where it was I couldn't trust my eyes I saw my home totally destroyed Nobody survived and my loved ones where all there The whole thing had began and the bloody game was on All I wanted was to be part of it "Then, to simplify matters, everything happened at once, the doctor's wife announced in a loud voice that they were free, the roof of the right wing collapsed with a terrifying crash, sending out flames on all sides, the blind inmates rushed into the yard, shouting at the top of their voices, some did not make it, they remained inside, crushed against the walls, others were trampled under foot and transformed into a formless, bloody mass, the fire that has suddenly spread will soon reduce all of this to ashes. The gate is wide open. The madmen escape."
