How many people have it all and want more?
Just one more toffee from the box
Or one more lady to make love to
Or a car 10 miles per hour faster
Is the grass always greener?
Step over the fence to see
There’s no way back over tho
Make a choice and away you go
Cross your fingers it’s better
Are all people like this?
May I look inside their heads?

We gather high upon the hill
To do our ritual and spells
It’s dark up here with a breeze
Just like it was five thousand years ago
Our ancestors met up here
And did what we did here
One long connected circle line
We add to that each year
The veil thins and we chant songs
Their words have meaning
Carefully put together for this act
Reaching out ...

See how they run on the running track
How they move swift as lightning
Some faster than others but all quicker
Than you or me or him over there
Those toned up bodies giving their all
Not necessarily young or sexy
Just in shape and ready to go
Five ten fifteen times round
This 800 metre track till done
Come back and do it again
Every single day is race...

A man who wants to be a God
Man only not a supernatural being?
Exactly what are you and why?
Man enough to dare to be a God
