Crescendo

Play

Nobody knew - the future was ours to hold
Seer of visions, or teller of lies?
What could he do - when destiny was foretold
You could see the anguish in his eyes
Get down crescendo!

Haunted by fear - and dreaming of things to come
An computer-age, and nuclear wars

Shadows appear - but where are they comin' from?
And he can't make them go away
Get down crescendo!

He knew it was time - he stood on the brink of fame
His powers were growing, his message would be shared
Killed in his prime - nobody knew his name
His life, a crescendo that never peaked
He will always be known as...

Poor crescendo - capture the rainbow
Embrace the colours, and gather the sunbeams
Poor crescendo - let your tears flow
Come sail away, on an ocean of dreams
