The darkening evening, silent sweptroads
Still, I am dreaming
Still, I am lost in thestars
Growing ever bright
As twilight marriesnight
In this land
Of little girl's braids undone
Andyoung men weeping
Over battles that have never beenfought
I have just watched the sun
Set over urbanAmerica
Washed in gray defiance
And the roof of thehouse I grew up in
Becomes my island
In this seaof
Desperation, greed, loneliness
We've become so muchcloser to
And further away from each other
We growrestless in our own minds
Hit the pavement
Trying tofree our
Minds, free
Our
Dreams
From under thebuildings
