Analysis of Flying start

Oldfieldian source: Lise Andreasen. Ricardo Valle.

People always talk about the bad lyrics of mr. Oldfield. Well, I happen to like lyrics, and like most of his songs. My favorite is Flying Start, but when I tried to recall what it was about, I couldn't come up with a simple answer. So I decided to make some sort of text analysis. I assumed that all the pieces are there, but that they may be scattered. And then I started looking for clues. First the whole text, then what I deduced from it. One good thing: all the lines seems to fit my theory one way or the other.

Other opinions are very welcome.
