Question to My Son:                                                    

The following was my theme song in 1986 (the year after it came out) and when I made my decision

The one that changed your life by the next year.

Have you understood any of it?

There are three questions in the song.

Can you answer them? Can you tell me which one it has turned out to be?

[From Mad Max – Beyond Thunderdome Soundtrack]
Out of the ruins
Out from the wreckage
Can’t make the same mistake this time
We are the children
The last generation
We are the ones they left behind
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change (change)
Living under the fear, till nothing else remains
We don’t need another hero
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
The Thunderdome
Looking for something
We can rely on
There’s got to be something better out there
Love and compassion
Their day is coming
All else are castles built in the air
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change (change)
Living under the fear till nothing else remains
All the children say
We don’t need another hero
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
The Thunderdome
So what do we do with our lives
We leave only a mark
Will our story shine like a light?
Or end in the dark?
Is it all or nothing?
We don’t need another hero
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
Thunderdome
