A FADIN’ STAR

There’s a statue on a lonely island.
By the wrinkles you can see the years.
But that’s the beauty,
and that’s what it makes it unique.

Touch it up, aesthetic out of the question.
Irresponsible, not just a matter of taste.
A changed appearance, a faint operation.
‘Cause character is changed.

When I see you,
a fadin’ star.
You’ve gone too far,
no matter where you are.

And when I hear you,
the outcome is rough.
‘Cause it’s never enough.
A thrust from above,
according to you.
It’s something you just got to do!

A photo’s getting grey, it’s part of evolution.
Time is changing, we cannot deny.
If you be yourself, the image stays longer.
‘Cause the truth is stronger then the lie!

Some call it treason, some call it nostalgia.
Some want to spirit away the traces of time.
If there’s a balance between soul and body.
The race is not important, (just the line).

When I see you,
a fadin’ star.
You’ve gone too far,
no matter where you are.

And when I touch you,
the outline is rough.
I think I’ve seen enough.
The unity of the features is gone;

And then the media say;
“It’s cool to be smooth again.”
Make you believe, it’s what you need.

Public opinion says;
“It’s vogue to be ‘new’ again.
You cannot do without indeed.
It’s something you just gotta greet.”

Behind these walls hide the real emotions.
No frown, no close-up, no look face to face.
Crosspolination, without a denouement,
a masquerade!

And when I see you now,
a fadin’ star.
You’ve gone too far,
no matter where you are.

And when I ask you,
the answer is rude.
It’s never understood,
why the future of your beauty is gone!

And then the media say;
“It’s cool to be smooth again.
You cannot live without indeed.”

Public opinion says;
“It’s vogue to be ‘new’ again.”
Make you believe it’s what you need.

And then the doctors say;
“It’s easy to create again.
Lines you don’t like, we can delete.”

And then my neighbour says;
“It’s hard to live next door again,
to the last exception of the street!”
