The Ballad of Riley and the Spokesman of a generation 
 
She was hitting the score 
A peaceful afternoon in Ladbrook Park 
Then Kyle took the courage to say more 
“A fire will come out of our spark” 
 
He became a spokesman 
With the right words from his mouth  
And she became a lawyer 
A great couple without a doubt  
 
And whole thing started in a windy night 
And whole thing started in a windy night 
 
Then they could not expect  
That something could put an end in that love 
In a dazed and confused nigh Riley was abducted for a ship above 
 
“The aliens took my love, the aliens took my love” 
That’s what he started to shout at the conference 
No one would believe, he lost self confidence, the spokesman of a generation had lost his touch with the words of coherence 
 
 
Not all the lights that comes from above 
Descends to enlighten us 
That’s why I prefer the dark 
Without a fire and without spark 
 
Outro 
 
Now Kyle is unemployed,  
Hitchhiking between places,  
Scrounging for his meal and begging for a miserable deal,  
Aspot where to sleep,  
Just because of a speech. 
 
And he is still saying that she’s gone like a blow  
Because Riley couldn’t be a rock and not to roll
