Not Reading The News

He sits in the back

Of an unstretched limosine
Watching the signs of life
Paint the slow moving scene
Building of a past
Falling / rising empire

Where are all the trees?
How high must I turn my head
To see the sky?

Back home, back home, home?
There is soo much free time
Can’t think when there is always
Something on my mind

Too much time reading the news
Gives one the blues
Turn the page
Maybe This Time
It will say
Something great
“My mistake”

“How do you people do such horrible things?”
This mind screams!
“I can’t belive these two…” He reads

Outside the window of the limo
There is hundreds in view,
Living their lives
Not reading the news
