WHEN IS THE FUTURE?

[2018]

A STRANGER IN THE CROWD
TREADING FIRE AFTER DARK
LOST IN A CITY
PULSING TO A SOUND
OF THE SPIRIT AND SOUL
A CITY THAT IS BREATHING
LIVING THROUGH THE CABLES
ALIVE ACROSS THE WIRES
FACES WITHOUT NAMES
PLAYING DEVILS AND ANGELS
LIT UP BY THE STROBES
MOVING HYPNOTISED
I CAUGHT YOUR REFLECTION
IN THE NEON ON GLASS
AN ELECTRIC SILHOUETTE
AGAINST A STATIC SKY

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DREAM
IT’S A BEAUTIFUL LIFE
IT’S JUST A REFLECTION
A WORLD THAT MUST SURVIVE
WE’RE CHILDREN OF THE PAST
WHO LOOK BEYOND TODAY
DESIGNING THE PRESENT
SO WHEN IS THE FUTURE
WE LIVE IN A DREAM
KEEPING VISIONS ALIVE
IT’S JUST A REFLECTION
A WORLD THAT NEVER DIES
AN IMAGE WE CREATE
IN OUR IMAGE WE DESIGN
IT’S A BEAUTIFUL LIFE
SO WHEN IS THE FUTURE

TIME MOVES SO FAST
IN A SINGLE DIRECTION
FIGHTING WITH A PRESENT
RACING FROM THE PAST
WE’RE SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING
THAT CAN NEVER SATISFY
THE REALITY OF ANSWERS
WHEN LIVES ARE ON THE LINE
I’VE WAITED A LIFETIME
FOR THE AGE OF WONDER
A PLACE THAT I REMEMBER
IN A SPLINTER OF TIME
A STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND
CAUGHT IN THE FLOW
STILL SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS
AMONG THE NEON LIGHTS
