voices
lyrics by Penelope Houston/ music by P. Houston, A. Gibson

Children are always coming and going
Adults are growing old and dying off
The memories saved are for ever distorting
The future will cover the loss

These are the voices that call me
The sirens are singing my name
I'm headed for enemy territory
The future is taking his claim

Now I'm young. I've had enough fun
I'm ready to leave it behind
I want to see, to plunge into my destiny
and execute this fortune of mine

These are the voices that call me
The sirens are singing my name
I'm headed for enemy territory
The future is taking his claim

Bring on my fate
I refuse to audition
I'm ready for a life
That will twist my soul
And give me a face
That's wracked with emotion
Give me a vision
To grow old

These are the voices that call me
The voices that sing and seduce
I'm headed for enemy territory
I'll never return to my youth
