Periscope 
    (Difford/Tilbrook)

      (Used to be..)
      Where do you think he's gone
      That skinny boy in jeans
      With some fantastic dreams
      He leapt from song to song
      And as he danced all night
      Vivacious and polite
      His face was always feared by those he engineered
      To grin from ear to ear......

      Now it's a joke, as I up periscope 
      I can see how the land used to lie
      The world will float, then sink again like soap, 
      You know I didn't have to try
      To find how things looked in your paradise.

      Where do you think he went
      The one who thought he was the one nailed to the cross
      His personal fame was spent on custom-made guitars
      And big black shiny cars
      When all he owned was great
      And it went down on the slate that 

      All he did was break people's hearts ....

      Oh, why do you think he's done
      This bright angelic youth
      Who grew long in the tooth
      He's talked to everyone about the things he's said 
      Now he's picked up the pen
      To write it down again
      Smiling brightly with the flame and you went by name
      As a friend...
