--We donít even know where weíre going,
itís true , but we still want to get there faster.--


The land’s decorated in yellow and pink

Sunning lovers kiss lazily over a drink

Springtime’s got a way of making you think

some fairytales last forever


But in the blink of an eye

it’s all over

we’re through

and we’re stumbling at the brink of disaster

We don’t even know where we’re going

it’s true

but we still want to get there faster


Don’t worry ‘bout the world burning up in the sun

We can roll in the money

just keep having fun

cause in the land of the blind

the one-eyed man’s king

Everything’s fine ‘til life brings what it brings


So don’t count the seconds or minutes or hours

Drive a big fast car

gazing out at the flowers

Bad things do happen to good people

it’s so

Still doesn’t take a giant leap of faith to know

most of us were hiding our heads in the sand

Destruction of paradise wasn’t quite what we planned


We made a wasteland out of the Garden of Eden

No problems ahead if we don’t want to see them

Don’t see hunger or war

Don’t see what we created

bringing death door to door

It’s no wonder some hate us


A little place decorated in blue and in gold

No need to worry ‘bout whose future we sold

In the end nothing matters

leave behind all our things

Just a speck in the sun

same for paupers and kings


Springtime’s got a way of making you think

some fairytales last forever


Paradise

Your verses are apt, timely, and powerfully meaningful, Lisa. Thank you for sharing your perspective. Love and best wishes to you,

I am a PROUD American. They only hate us because we're like the rich uncle they go to when they need something, and then back-stab him in the back.
