Fool's Overture Lyrics

Songwriters: Hodgson, Roger; Davies, Rick;

{We shall go on to the end
We will fight on the sea and the earth
We will shall defend our island
Whatever the cost may be
We will never surrender}

History recalls how great the fall can be
While everybody's sleeping, the boats put out to sea
Borne on the wings of time
It seemed the answers were so easy to find
"Too late," the prophets cried
The island's sinking, let's take to the sky

Called the man a fool, who stripped him of his pride
everyone was laughing, up until the day he died
Oh though the wounds went deep
Still he's calling us out of our sleep
My friends, we're not alone
He waits in silence to lead us all home

So you tell me that you find it hard to grow
Well I know, I know, I know
And you tell me that you've many seeds to sow
I know, I know, I know

Can you hear what I'm saying
Can you see the parts that I'm playing
"Holy Man, Rocker man, come on Queenie
Joker Man, Spider Man, Blue Eyed Meanie
So you found your solution
What will be your last contribution?
Live it up, rip it up, why so lazy?
Give it out, dish it out, let's go crazy
