The Silent Roar

Heroes come and never go
magician wants to steal the show
apostles mouth the silent roar
anticipating the matador
one voice one shout
the choir chats the same old song
and high above the crowd he sings
as dead on time the show begins

Soul of a gypsy heart of a hunter
feet of a dancer spinning you round
face of an angel head full of stardust
you've got the eye of a dreamer
they cant hold you down

A misty place on a starry night
the stage is set for him tonight
magician falls to his knees
disciples wake and kiss the breeze
bright lights red and green
he’s the stranger they've never seen
he’s only there to blow their minds
the tragic lonely simple kind

Swinging wand of chrome and wood
to satisfy his hungry brood
blue and yellow spot him now
ten hundred pupils far below
let him thrill you while he can
a lonely simple tragic man
and high above so far away
he turns and walks the way he came
