One day I dreamed
There was a girl; she called me friend and walked me home
There was a school teacher; she called me student and gave e a treat
There was a mill; it called me worker and gave me money to buy a gift
There was a boy; he called me darling and kissed my hand
There was a dog; it called me master and licked my face
There was a home; it was called America

One day I screamed
There was a girl; she called me a freak and knocked me down
There was a school teacher; she called me stupid and pointed at me and laughed
There was a mill; it told me to go home and mocked me as I left
There was a boy he called me ugly and spit in my face
There was a dog; it called me prey and bit my shoe
There was a dungeon; it was called America

America is coming near
