Treasure Island

Mark Hopwood

(27th July 1974 / Liverpool)

Stuffed


Now it's set in stone
I'm here, I'm alone
The Move has been made
I'm cold, I'm afraid
The Candle is tossed
I'm stranded and lost
But the time still goes on
I'm here but I'm gone.

The light burns bright
It's day, it's night
Life must be chased
It's held, it's misplaced
So fight for your dreams
It's smiles and their screams
Just give all you can
For its path and its plan.

So can you see, the answer is yes
Can you be? you can I guess
You are free, but your brain is a mess
So take the key, there's doors to unlock
What horror and shock,
just give more than you take
Sleep deep and then wake
Because its real and not fake
So don't hold this mistake, for your own sake,
Live, Give, Let live, if you can
If you want to be stuffed.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
