His beloved Lara, tonight travels to another land, a nameless number on a list to be mislaid...'cause Mother Russia's passion, became big brother's scorn, for his healing hands do write the lines, that set her people free...tonight a thousand people die, ten thousand souls barely alive...poets and the dreamers on a stage for a one night stand...'cause big brother's on their heels and the man is at the door! (short instrumental break)...He was frozen, cold and hungry, but Lord, he did not feel the pain, when he awoke to the glowing light, of her angelic gaze...as he looks toward the sun in the sky, the clouds roll by, the angels start to cry...balalaika ringin' out the notes of a song been heard before, as the sun begins to shine, a heart takes wings and soars, the serenade of her soul gonna lead him on and on...(instrumental break)...His beloved Lara, tonight travels to another land, a nameless number on a list to be mislaid...Larissa's wonder moves his hand and stirs the soul...a whirlwind a blowin' as the words begin to flow...a symphony of verses, crashing symbols, notes in quartertones...the serenade of her soul gonna lead him on and on...
