about

A song about our future, eluding to problems that are emerging due to globalization, environmental degradation, economic inequality, and general lack of conscious humanity.

lyrics

A war in the east is a war in the west
The price could be high but the cause is the test
Rambling the streets on the pathway of Romans
Romance is begging a valiant performance

I told my dear wife that our children are blessed
And their burrows will prosper if all goes the best
She’ll rest her small frame with a head full of omens
Fresh air in the sky and cigarettes for the homeless.

So breath in the spirit and sigh out a ghost
We walked in as guest but we talk like the host
So many hands needing bread from the basket
So many hearts live their lives in a casket

I told my dear wife that our children our blessed
And their burrows will prosper if all goes the best
But these are the signs to the place where the road ends
Fresh air in the sky and cigarettes for the homeless.
