My people are American. Today is my time.

This broken clockwork

spinning on and on.

You're caught within.

What is there to see beyond?

Dear child, the light

in your eyes

is gone.

The spinning clockwork

keeps moving on.

How can the world

keep moving on

now that your clockwork

has stopped beating on?

How could this life have been

so tragically wronged?

You are silent

but we will continue our song.

The love that you had

within your heart

is something with which

we refuse to part.

So keep this clockwork

in your soul.

the golden peace

can fill the hole

We feel with every single

passing day.

Until we see your face

your heart, with us

will stay.
