“oooooppss, we’ve got magic to do….” – (from the ‘eleven’)

"OUR CO-FILIPINO STARS AND CELEBRITIES WON'T LET THEM DOWN"
“THE ‘ELEVEN’ STARS WON’T LET THEM DOWN”

 

… And that’s why we came. 

but they didn’t see,

and, they didn’t listen

before.

 

As a young man looks upon a TREE,

he knew.

he understood…

and he believed.

and so we came.

 

the TREE will again protect

the images of eternity.

that they always defy

and the lessons they got will 

answer their questions

“WHY?”

 

Nature stands triumphant

in the end.

 

Nature wins.

And no matter what they say,

we’re all here to

STAY.

 

OOOOPPSS,

WE’VE GOT MAGIC TO DO-

NOW!
