Two years since I partied and I’m feeling the blue
When my age is counted, I’m skipping these two
Come take a lick of cake girl; it’s just me and you

Dream merchants selling hope through shirts and memorabilia
encouraging us to dream of a space and time where all will be free…
While in the now their borders and fences divide us
and manipulative politics rob us of humanity.
Fly high… way high… beyond the sky…
so high that you see not those stripped of basic dignity.

Looking down upon the people of the nation…

Yet let the journey between be worthwhile.
What greater legacy can we leave, than to bring a young one smiles.

Ah, the lights that dazzle pretty and bright
And such beautiful people in my sight
Yet no one beside me to set my heart alight

Like barbed wires…
they come between you and that of which you dream.
You may not mount and ride, nor be one with stallion and wind;
Yet you can’t but reach for that one tantalizing touch of what could be.
