lyrics

THE FAN
(c) Ju Honisch

Chorus:
Hello Fan,
what are you doing with your life,
today and tomorrow?
What are you doing with your time,
your days and your hours,
your minutes and your years?
Why are you in tears?

In the dubious privacy
of your little girl's room
all between your models and your toys
there you dream
and you dream
typing pages after pages
of the latest Star Wars zine
just a door between you and your parents' voice.

The money from the dole
becomes ever more scanty
and rides panic over your soul
and you sigh
and you cry
take your sketch book out and travel
with your pen to dragon den
where you'd like to stay forever and for aye.

Your creative mind is warping
out around reality - you keep
busy with your self-appointed tasks
and you mourn
and feel torn
'tween the very bare necessities
of life and its demands
and the image of the maiden in distress.

You're responsible for nothing,
let yourself be led by fate
and you blame it
if it doesn't turn out well;
so you make
no mistake
for it's fate's well-known indifference
that gets you where you are
and never a decision of your own.

Last Chorus:
Hello Fan,
what are you doing with your life,
today and forever,
when did you leave the real world,
your life and your future,
your priorities, your hope?
When did you stop to cope?
