I have seen the Magic Mountain

And embraced its snowy peaks

I have washed in Trevi’s Fountain

And have strolled her busy streets.

I have eaten in the Plaza

Where Bernadette met her Saint

And meandered through the vista

Where Monet did sit and paint.

I have been to London’s Tower

Where Anne Boleyn lost her head

And tred the hills of Gettysburg

Where fields are full of the dead.

I stood and watched the eastern sky

When the Challenger came down

And since that day I’ve wondered why

I still tremble with that sound.

But most of all I remember

Back when I was still a child

The seventh day of December

When all of the world went wild !

 

BOLD DECEPTION ( 2015 )

Somehow it seems along the way

I can’t say why we’ve gone astray

We’ve wandered far off of the road

And took on this excessive load

Who was it knew what this might be

A final act of heresy  ?

Some were good men we know by name

Who tried to save us from this game

As others rushed headlong into

Lack of concern for what was true

They’ve lied and cheated on us all

And bear the blame for freedom’s fall !
