Maybe inspired in part
from REO Speedwagon…

Sooner or later you will find a way
To feel like sunshine, even on a cloudy day
To feel like morning in the dead of night
Sooner or later it’s gonna be all right
Now don’t go thinking your life’s a mess
Rather start thinkin’ in terms of happiness
And it’s gonna happen
Just decide were you’re goin’
Get out in the open
And start blazin’ your own trail again
It takes time sometimes to figure out
That there’s nothing to worry about
And that there’s plenty to be thankful for
It takes time sometimes to know the score
See, everybody’s got a smile inside
So put it upon your face and wear it with pride
And it’s gonna happen
Just decide were you’re goin’
Get out in the open
And start blazin’ your own trail again

LYRICS:

It’s gonna happen
You watch

We are graced by rascals
Who know what the future holds
The emperor has no clothes
On a land where cities float

Our land has been taken and
Stripped bare naked
Plastered with asphalt
And buildings, mistaken
As symbols of cultures,
Crap-hauled by vultures
Flattered into chains
By irons of gold

Oh, how it will be
When a citizen can flee
On a platform at sea
Detatch, and float away
To wherever you wanna be
Hope I’ll live to see that day
When I may find may way
On a platform at sea
Detatched, away
To wherever I wanna be

When rulers are dated
It’s time to change pace and
Face that technologies, then, were
Written with ink and pen
By people who didn’t know then
It later may happen
We’d be driving in cars
And texting from mars

A better world by force
Is a better world gone worse
A dead man is of no use
Lest he had the power to choose
