The American Dream


From inside the half-full fish bowl... Reach out and swallow the sky whole...
Golden fish out of breath... Writing symphonies of her death...
Killing sunshine one ray at a time... Holding balloons for the popular crime...
Stretching droplets into ocean... Diluting Alchemist's golden potion...
Billing emotions by the hour... Darkness smudging the rest of scar...
Gaping soul buying time... Miming a leech, leeching the mime...
Hold your gun, blow your brain... paint some station, ride some train...
Annual update in the glory book... Crucification of a made-up crook...
Tinted glasses, stolen vases... Snatching roses, touching bases...
Spraying orange, praying mothers... Brothers-in-arms, arm the brothers...
Put your head through the magic box... Lose the shoe, you're a princess in socks...
Turn those deserts into gold... buy the young, bill the old...
Roll the dice, change the fate... raise the bet, fill the plate...
Change the partner, chase the dream... Faster car, higher beam...
Lose the cowards, shush the whispers... shut the drapes, milk the misters...
Catch the wind, tear it apart... Soak the fingers in your pruning heart...
Find a clown, find your kindness... Throw a coin, cure your blindness...
Avoid the shadows, uneven streets are hard... Plenty of robbers, and the ones you scarred...
Raise the flags, find the pride... Double the closets, plenty to hide...
Define the freedom, choose the free... Choose the saplings to feed the tree...
Carve the gravestone, print your ticket to heaven... See you off to God now, your timeless weapon...
