Lightning strikes through the blackened clouds
Fighting my way past the endless crowds
They push, they shove, and then I fall
On my hands and knees I crawl
Through rivers and valleys I make my way
The sun gives not a single ray
Darkness blinds me, makes me weep
I cannot breathe and yet I creep
Day after day I fight the dread
My body aches and I feel dead
Then the world is shifting fast
I know the evil cannot last
I look around, see blooming trees
The grass sways in a gentle breeze
Surroundings vivid, clear, and clean
The sky is perfect, blue, pristine
I take a breath and then I smile
I'll be here for quite a while
I wonder why the world is new
The grass so green, the sky so blue
And then it is all clear to see
The only thing that changed is me
