The Phoenix - Trev and the Collective Unconscious

Video and song story to come to this

THE PHOENIX Middlesbrough 1986

After the planes came
With bombs for our city.
After the night-raid’s
Nightmare intensity.

In the wake of the heartbreak-
Life-quakes
Sorrow in the heart-shocked
Fear-shelled
tomorrow.

Chorus
You – must carry on – Rise from the ashes – Soar in the sky
You – mustn’t give in – have faith in your future – pride in your past
You – must carry on – Rise from the ashes – Soar in the sky
You – mustn’t give in – Just like the phoenix – Never say die.


The Sirens sounded
The scramble for shelter.
Survival in crisis
Fear jammed the senses.
The drone of the bombers
Descending like demons
Menacing our skyways,
Our streets are exploding
Sudden cadence of brick-fall
Operation – Moonlight Sonata.

Bridge
This is for those who fell in the moonlight
While the bombers raged and the ….

In the silence
Of heart-stopped
emergence
From shelters
The seeking of loved ones
In rubble hid carnage.
A spirit was rising
Hardened by hammers
That called forth the flames
In the shape of a future.
From the embers of darkness
