Intrepid Travellers – laughing in failure’s face© (lyrics)

(This is two/three different tempos and melodies* inter-linked, not sure how well it reads, the chorus was going to be ‘we are intrepid travellers, born to carry on…’)

 

There’s a little boy who’s lost, he’s realised the cost,

Has a billion reasons to start crying.

Blank faced as he walks, down pictured corridor

No hand to hold tightly and guide him.

Opening doors of despair, to a fate no-one cares

Should he live a thousand years, or die here

8 years in the making, family forsaking,

To discover shame, now everyone blames him…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*And he’s sat on a bike…

– Going nowhere

A blue suit, as a shield

– To hide him

Love sent an angel

– To guide him

Just in time

– She caught him flying

 

*She said so fry the cakes, bake the food

All we are is a substitute

Face it baby, we’ve no more to lose

 

*We’re intrepid travellers

Running the race

Never ever to give up…

Laughing in failure’s face

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*But the man he is lost, stares at a box,

Has a billion reasons to start crying

Caught in a snare, with life and death

Love wrestling to fit in there.

His neighbours celebrate, while his memories cremate

But he carries them with him, regardless

The freebird is released; the phoenix is revealed

And the band will sing on, regardless…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*Angel draws him a map

– To guide him

Music of her feelings

– To remind him

A road trip home

– To teach him

They must part

– Never knowing…

 

*She said so fry the cakes, bake the food

All we are is a substitute

Face it baby, we’ve no more to lose…..

 

*We’re intrepid travellers

Running the race

Never ever to give up…

Laughing in failure’s face
