BRAVE DREAMS SOMETIMES
THAT ARE KINDLED FROM ASHES ONLY SOMETIMES
RISE OUT OVER ALL THE BATTLE BELOW I QUESTION EVERYTHING
SPREAD WINGS OVER ALL THAT HE PASSES AND I’M THE FIRST TO ADMIT
SO HIS LIFE CAN STAY IMMORTAL TO HIS COUNTRY IF YOU CATCH ME IN A MOOD LIKE THIS
SHADES OF GREEN THAT FALL BENEATH THIS TREE I CAN BE TIRING EVEN EMBARRASSING
SO LET THE WINDS OF CHANGE BUT YOU MUST FEEL THE SAME
THAT REARRANGE THE COUNTRY WHEN YOU LOOK AROUND
LET IT ALSO SOW A SEED OF MEMORY YOU CAN’T TELL ME HONESTLY
