WORLD OF CRYSTAL

Written & Composed by Michael Woodhead

I must travel once again
I must bear the aching pain
I must meet the Registrars
Of the world of crystal
Sea of stars

There the people love to play
Where each day's a holiday
Soon, I'll be so very far
Near the world of crystal
Sea of Stars

Starships pass me, onwards fly
To the yellow, cloudless sky
Nothing else will ever mar
This world of crystal
Sea of stars

Naked women, naked men
Still their homes they must defend
Prisoners kept behind force-bars
On the world of crystal
Sea of stars

Children weaned at early age
Turn ahead a yellowed page
Here the sun will never char
This world of crystal
Sea of stars

Soon, this race will cease to live
When the sustenance won't give
Then from Earth they'll flee to Mars
To this world of crystal
Sea of stars
