18 years later: It's Alright - Relevant Free Markets Poetry by the Pet Shop Boys

It's Alright (1988)


Dictation being forced in Afghanistan
Revolution in South Africa taking a stand
People in EurAsia on the brink of oppression



I hope it's going to be alright
I hope the music plays forever


Forests falling at a desperate pace
The earth is dying, and desert taking its place
People under pressure on the brink of starvation



I hope it's gonna be alright
'Cause the music plays forever


Generations will come and go
But there's one thing for sure
Music is our life's foundation
And shall succeed all the nations to come


I hope it's gonna be alright
And the music plays forever

The year three thousand may still come to pass
But the Music shall last
I can hear it on a timeless wavelength
Never dissipating but giving us strength


I think it's gonna be alright
'Cause the music plays forever
'Cause it goes on and on, forever

Hey Carlos,

just lost sight of you (your uva mail account does no longer exist I assume) and passed by your blog. I do miss our thoughtful discussions and ideas to rescue the world. Hope we can keep contact. I want to drop by Amsterdam soon (in Juli). So I hope, you receive my message :)

Best, Heide said...
