Coelho az új Iron Maiden

Milyen korszerű mondanivalóra leltem ebben a régi számban. (Persze egy őszinte hardrock banda kikacsintós, önironikus narrációja azért befogadhatóbb, mint a mester könyörtelenül egyenes beszédmódja.)

The Apparition by Iron Maiden

Iron Maiden: The Apparition

Now I'm here can you see me
'Cos I'm out on my own
When the room goes cold tell me you can feel me
… 'cos I'm here

Here I am, can you see me
Passing through, on my way
To a place I'd been to only in my dreams... before

In a world of delusion
Never turn your back on a friend
'Cause you can count your real true friends on one hand
… through life

There are those that deceive you
There are those That'll let you down
Is there someone out there that would die for you
… thought not

Live your life with a passion
Everything you do, do well
You only get out of life what you put in
… so they say

In a world of confusion
People never say that what they mean
If you want a straight answer go look for one
… right now

In a room full of strangers
Do you stand with your back to the wall
Do you sometimes feel like you're on the outside
… looking in ?

You can make your own luck
You create your destiny
I believe you have the power if you want to
… it's true

You can do what you want to
If you try a little bit harder
A little bit of faith goes a long way
… it does

Are we here for a reason ?
I'd like to know just what you think
It would be nice to know what happened when we die
… wouldn't it ?

There are some who are wise
There are some who are born naive
I believe that there are some that must have lived before
… don't you ?

As for me, well I'm thinking
You gotta keep an open mind
But I hope that my life's not an open and shut case.

Extra Sensory Perception
Life After Death, telepathy
Can the soul live on and travel through space and time ?

You know I feel so clated
'Cause I'm about to find it out
And when I know all the answers
Maybe then I'll come back
… to fill you in

You don't be alarmed now
If I try to contact you
If things go missing or get moved around ...it's me
And don't disbelieve it
No matter what your `friends' might say
We'll meet up again some place some way
… one day.
