We Must Believe in Magic Mad is the captain of Alpha Centauri We must be out of our minds Still we are shipmates bound for tomorrow And everyone here's flying blind Oh, we must believe in magic We must believe in the guiding hand If you believe in magic You'll have the universe at your command Mad is the crew bound for Alpha Centauri Dreamers and poets and clowns Bold is the ship bound for Alpha Centauri Nothing can turn it around Oh, we must believe in magic We must believe in the guiding hand If you believe in magic You'll have the universe at your command Oh, we must believe in magic We must believe in the guiding hand If you believe in magic You'll have the universe at your command Oh, we must believe in magic We must believe in the guiding hand If you believe in magic You'll have the universe at your command Yes if you believe in magic You'll have the universe at your command

Brave Young Man Someday I'll be a brave young man Someday I will hold the world in my two strong hands Someday I will understand And be a brave young man Someday I will fall in love Maybe even rise above Perhaps see the master plan And be a brave young man Hold me now I can you feel a cold blowing wind Hold me now You may never see this old man again Someday I may make you smile Maybe we can dance awhile You can finally be a child I'll be a brave young man We hold it true and count off time But hide this truth inside But hopefully I will finally find Enough days left in my life To be a brave young man Hold me now Oh, I can you feel cold blowing wind Hold me now You may never see this old man again I know life will pass me by And I will watch the world From the heavens high But maybe first I'll give a try And be a brave young man Yes maybe first I'll give a try And be a brave young man

Dragon Song I was the freak in the sideshow I was the clown in the rodeo I was the ghost that you passed on the street you swore must have been James Dean And I sit on the riverbank And tell those fish straight forward and frank I say, "Hey fish!-'less you wanna get caught, You better want what you need!" You better want what you need If you laugh you must cry Think before you speak If you don't you might say goodbye Now would that be right? And if you jump the gun You better catch the wind This is your last chance Just think if you win All the pleasures you'll be enjoying… And I was the figure on the mountain side The shadow in the corner late at night The guy at the party in the cowboy hat Who pinched your ass when you walked past did it make you mad? Or honey did you like? Well fate sucks… But I bet you enjoy it. I was the man by the side of the road Who recites his poetry and strips off his clothes have you got five dollars? I'm an alcoholic Let's talk I'm so sober and lonesome And it helps me to realize to see it there in every man's eye is a fear and a horrible passion These are mine Eyes of the Dragon I was the nerd in the front of the class The hippie in the park smoking grass The man crying at the funeral That nobody knew And when the reverend said "Does anyone here protest this?" I said "I Do! I Do! I Do!" And anytime I had a chance in hell I stole your eye and quickly fell into the scenery A memory of a shadow Well you didn't want what you need You joked and laughed you should have cried Thought before you spoke but look what you said you said goodbye Oh, but I guess it's all right You've got your universe to run And yes, you run it right But you've left if for us to burn With the fire of the dragon And it helps me to realize To see it there in every man's eye There's a fear and a horrible passion These are mine Eyes of the dragon

Awake Sweet Dreamer Awake sweet dreamer You've slept too long The dawn has broken Dark night has gone The bell is ringing Across the square Calling you onward We 'wait you here Open your eyes child Embrace the day The evening shadows Have passed away No time for sleeping The world rolls on Awake sweet dreamer To a happy home No need to wander Not anymore The world is glistening Outside your door A fine tomorrow It beckons you Where a bright birdsong It rings so true Awake sweet dreamer The sunlight shines The band of angels In perfect time Awake sweet dreamer This is your day Bright comes the morning Do not delay

about

I remember believing in MAGIC.

I recall the wind in itself being alive and with a voice… It smelled awake, purposeful and speaking in a resounding tongue I perfectly understood. All was vast,
open, dazzling and wondrous. I believe this to be the truth of the world. And now? It is not the MAGIC that has altered but discernment… The way we breathe the world in, the way our eyes cut to the obvious flash, instead of opening to see the authentic reality.

It is not that we have to make MAGIC, create it as a sorcerer or a miracle maker… It is alive and very real. It is that we must BELIEVE IN MAGIC. It is not the truth that changes, it is that we move ourselves out of the grasp of the MAGIC… It is the awakening to the substance unseen which will allow us to once again remember. And to remember, we realize firstly it is not the truth that changes, but that we have moved ourselves out of the grasp of the MAGIC…

And now hope is just alive as the MAGIC itself. Infinitesimal faith is as powerful as a mountain, like the life within a seed, every fiber of our bodies beat with the cells of a thousand generations to come, and within is a steady, untangled line from the very beginning.

This is our power to claim, this is our MAGIC.

No matter our path, the MAGIC is inside us all. And though it may be forgotten, it can be remembered once again… It is only up to us to do one single thing, and do it purely…

BELIEVE.
