"Trip to the Fair" as written by Michael Dunford, Betty Thatcher and John Tout....
I took a trip down to look at the fair.
When I arrived I found nobody there.
It seemed I was all alone,
Must be that they've all gone home.

[Chorus]
A trip to the fair but nobody was there.
A trip to the fair but nobody was there.

Voices of yesterday make not a sound,
Even the roundabout stopped going 'round.
I wonder just what it means,
Is everything how it seems?

[Chorus]

A creak, as the dodgems came onto the scene.
Wheels began turning I started to scream.
A carousel swung around,
My head spun and hit the ground.

[Chorus]

I close my eyes to disguise the fear from inside,
Trembling within my own mind, I find no place to hide.
Stars of tomorrow shine through the grey mist that has gone.
I wish that this trip to the fair had never begun.

Suddenly thousands of faces I see,
Everyone seemed to be staring at me.
Clowns laughed in the penny arcade,
What was this game my mind played?

I took a trip down to look at the fair,
When I arrived I found nobody there.
It seemed I was all alone,
Must be that they've all gone home.

A trip to the fair but nobody was there, but nobody was there.
A trip to the fair but nobody was there, but nobody was there.

    My InterpretationThis music means for me how life is, how far we can our perceptions be of reallity (And what is reallity?) and about our doubts and questions.

    But the most beautiful meaning this music has to comes from meaning change of the word "fair". Changing fair sense to the justice perspective is a interesting change. All that doubt we have about whats arround and if things are the same thing we see comes to our sense of fair.

    A music about life intesection between fair grounds and fair thoughts.
