How I wish I were an eagle
A hawk or even a sea gull
Just as long as I had wings
To fly away from human beings

To get away from all the evil
All the corruption and political upheaval
All the genocide and all the homicide
And those who die from suicide

Kindness is existent, but relatively rare
You’re more likely to find gang warfare
Reds and blues kill each other for pride
Meanwhile, our nation is terrified

Foreclosures happen more than ever before
Families end up on streets, p*** poor
Unemployment is high and on the rise
And government still tries to hide
Poor leadership is evident
And nuclear threats are imminent
So many problems I wish to escape
If only I had wings to fly up and away
