Marco, watching the ground underneath his wheels
Will you be lucky
Will you be sleeping any better

Marco, watched by the crowd on a tv-screen
They hear you breathing
They hear you screaming
Are you screaming

Marco, just a few miles away from victory
Now close your eyes and see

Were you well enough prepared
Did you take a lot of drugs
Were you frequently abused
Or was God just on your side

What’s the rate of your IQ
Did you ever have a girl
Who confessed in front of you
That she’s happy

Marco, fighting a hill like he climbs on wings
Praised for your power
While I know you’re fragile like a flower

Marco, don’t look behind ‘cause you’re on your own
Now close your heart and feel

How it was to be a boy
Did you have a lot of friends
Were your parents any proud
Or was kindness not allowed

Were you scared to sleep in dark
Did you never face the truth
Who said you’d become a king
Of those stupids

Was it worth the blood and pain
Did you pay the highest price
To get all your dreams forfilled
To get purely satisfied

Will you celebrate your life
Will you make yourself a son
Who’ll confess in front of you
That he’s happy

I feel like I'm listening to David Sylvian. I love this genre.
Very smooth. The xylo was a bit surprising and annoying.
I would of toned it down. The vocals is a cross of Numan,
Bowie and Sylvian. All which are my favorites.

Great tune 8-8-7-8!

Transparent and startling
Very nice spaceful and transparent arrangement, that goes
with the lyrics and concept really well. Haunting vocals.
The unusual solo starts off perhaps too suddenly and
loudly, cuz it is a totally cool idea but startles in a way
that surprised me (the second time it plays, it is softer on
its entrance and doesn't startle, which is good). This is a
very cool, moody track.

Cool and Moody! Fine stuff. Do you also have a song about Eddie
Merckx, your countryman, and the greatest cyclist of all time? I lived in
Brussels over thirty years ago, when Eddie was winding down his brilliant

What made you pick Marco? Just curious!

Hi Clarck, thanks for commenting.
About this 'Marco' and not 'Eddy' thing: this is purely coincidence. I thought Marco just sounded better, and you know, these Italian cysclists have that little more pathos. Or maybe it's all due to our Belgian modesty :-)
