24 hours of singing, dancing, meditations and much more.

Who will wear the crown?

The alien conqueror is coming to town

Nobody knows who'll be wearing his crown 'till we count out the numbers and know just who's down

Oh, the alien conqueror is coming to town

A moment's been caught and a boat goes adrift Its duty and love and life their last gift

And we cheer for this frontline as they head for their shift

We're alone, we're together and there's the lift

And friends they're drowning as boats come apart

So many cut short, so much hurt in the heart

We all come to naught when we share out this crown

And the kings and the queens of each family fall down

Stars up above us on this empty London street

A springtime's fill of life alive the air so soft and sweet

The world is turning once again and when the wheel will stop

The world will form as something else and then the coin will drop

And out come all the questions, the questions we don't ask

As we close in from a distance and stay protected by the mask

For all of you who've fallen, no more is it your task

We'll make sure that light's infectious, that's still glowing in your cask
