Celebrate

They’ve all come to celebrate
An hour or so to illuminate
The doom that awaits them as soon as they’re back home
The gloom
Where feeble candles shimmer
Along silent, lonely dinners
And hopeless dawns where the thoughts forever roam

They’ve all come to celebrate
An hour or so to anticipate
The doom that awaits them as soon as they’re back home
The gloom
Where hardship rhymes with dying
Forever weak, forever trying
To say your prayers when you know you’re all alone…

Oh Celebrate…
Celebrate…
Celebrate…
Celebrate…

Oh Celebrate…
Celebrate…
Celebrate…

For when the clock strikes twelve
Cinderellas flee in a dash
For when the clock strikes five
Back to the field, the mine, the ash

We’ve all come to celebrate
An hour or so to contemplate
How our lives could be if we stood a chance
Just a glance !
At brightly coloured futures
Illusions hardly nurtured…
If there is no doubt---how it all turns out…
Well, then let’s---

Celebrate…
Celebrate…
Celebrate…
Celebrate…
Celebrate…
Celebrate…
