A prophecy for a fantasy, the curse of a vivid mind

I was obsessed with the lines of this song back then. I loved how these words were able to conjure up and whirl me far away into magical and fantastic worlds in my mind. Magic words, like spells.

Clever words too, with their sly conjunctions of somber ancient narratives with whimsical scurrilous fantasies.

T’Pau. I used to call them 茶包.

Come from greed
Never born of the seed
Took life from a barren land
Oh eyes wide
Like a child in the form of man
A prophecy for a fantasy
The curse of a vivid mind

It was a theme she had
On a scheme he had
Told in a foreign land

To take life on earth
To the second birth
And the man was in command

It was a flight on the wings
Of a young girls dreams
That flew too far away

T’Pau – China in your hand:

It was a theme she had
On a scheme he had
Told in a foreign land

To take life on earth
To the second birth
And the man was in command

It was a flight on the wings
Of a young girls dreams
That flew too far away

Don’t push too far
Your dreams are china in your hand
Don’t wish too hard
Because they may come true
And you can’t help them
You don’t know what you might
Have set upon yourself

China in your hand

Come from greed
Never born of the seed
Took life from a barren land
Oh eyes wide
Like a child in the form of man
A prophecy for a fantasy
The curse of a vivid mind

Don’t push too far
Your dreams are china in your hand
Don’t wish too hard
Because they may come true
And you can’t help them
You don’t know what you might
Have set upon yourself

China in your hand
In your hand, your hand

Don’t push too far
Your dreams are china in your hand
Don’t wish too hard
Because they may come true
And you can’t help them
You don’t know what you might
Have set upon yourself
You shouldn’t push too hard, no no
Don’t push too far
Your dreams are china in your hand
Don’t wish too hard
Because they may come true
And you can’t help them
You don’t know what you might
Have set upon yourself
