PRINCE OF PAN

THE PRINCE OF PAN
WILL DANCE NO MORE
NO MORE MOON WALK ENCORES
NO MORE SPINS GALORE
NO MORE SELF DELIGHT
IN PIROUETTE OR GRACEFUL SOAR

BUT THE JOY WAS GONE
LONG BEFORE, LONG BEFORE, LONG BEFORE
THE JOY WAS GONE LONG BEFORE

THE PRINCE OF PAN WILL SING NO MORE
NO MORE WORDS OF HOPE
NO MORE TOUGH BULLIES TO TELL OFF
NO MORE RHYTHMIC FICTION THRILLERS
NO MORE SILLY ABCS, LYRICAL LONGING, OR YOUTHFUL GLEE

BUT THE JOY WAS GONE
LONG BEFORE, LONG BEFORE, LONG BEFORE
THE JOY WAS GONE LONG BEFORE

THE PRINCE OF PAN WILL FANTASIZE NO MORE
OF LOOKING LIKE DIANA ROSS
CARRYING BAREBREASTED LIBERTY’S TORCH
RESURRECTING NEVER NEVER LAND
OR EVER ANGRILY EVOLVING
INTO A MAN

THE PRINCE OF PAN WILL DREAM NO MORE
OF EBONY AND IVORY
UNIVERSAL HARMONY
FEEDING THE CHILDREN
ENDING OPPRESSION

BUT WE STILL CAN
