THE FAIR STORY
Words & Music by: Piet Louter
I saw many people trust to airy hope and dreams
That their fervent prayers will be finally redeemed
In boundless wealth and happiness, coming later on,
Once their earthly lives will have been gone.
I saw masses of people wasting all their lives
By complying with silly rules, just making them deprived
Of earthly fun and flowering and being worldly-wise.
Their firmness is their torment in disguise.
They want to be amused with fairy stories.
They want to be confused and put down.
But whatever is wrong with the fair story,
Which everybody seems to get around.
They just are to follow this safe and beaten track
To make sure of being patted on the back
To make sure of getting admission and love
And especially the blessings from above.
They are to be amused with airy stories.
They are to be confused and put down.
And don’t wonder what’s in the fair story
Which everyone’s just getting around
They don’t wanna hear of contemporary views
From habit and for fear of being disabused
For fear of the unknown, for fear of death
But mostly of themselves, whom they are left.
So they like to be amused with scary stories
They like to be confused and put down
Just for fear of what’s in the fair story
Which everybody’s getting around.
