Never-Ending Parsifal

Blue flame of eternity!

Burn deep as alcohol in the night!

Absolutely never stopping, this is the longest note


Dared in history!

Never to be so long again!

Never that moment of truth and beauty can again like that quite be again!


Never let it go away!

The flames of furious fire shooting

Upward and banging against all bars!

Fight away!

Imagination will rule the streets

And the cosmos will reburst in flames!
