Something is so unutterably lonely
About the American way.
I saw it in the longing gaze of Daisy Faye.
She cried to her lover, begging for hope
That only he could find
Seas of chocolate sorrow begged his aid.
These seas of sadness languished in opulence
Surpassing all imagining
Tears inside a diamond box of anguish.
That’s when I saw the American Dream,
In all it’s haunting life,
As one sees it, both within and without.
Come to the land with cobblestones of gold,
Flowing with milk and honey,
And long for something else in the land of plenty.
