I Imagine

I imagine,
Yes, I imagine every day,
No matter what people may say,
Or what they may throw my way,
I imagine every day,

I try and love,
I try and love every day,
I heard what you were singing of,
While the sky was falling away,
And the bombs were going off,
And the people's cry was heard night and day,

If only you were here today,
Would things be any different,
I wonder,
You'd still be singing your song,
We'd be pushing on and on,
Standing tall,
By the city walls,
Tearing down barriers and barricades,
Fighting off the powers that be,
With chantings of peace, love and liberty,

I dream,
Oh, how I dream those ancient,
And eternal dreams,
That keep our blood red and burning,
And make us place our hearts and souls over the ledge,
That drive us over the edge,
That make us look far beyond the horizon,
And catch a glimpse of what lies ahead,

What would you say,
If you could speak out today,
Tell me, would you still,
Be fighting the folks at capitol hill,
That drop their bombs and shoot their guns
Only for the thrill to kill,
I imagine you would,
And I'd be standing beside you,

I cannot believe,
That so long ago,
Your life line was cut off so,
But 'till this day,
Your cry is heard,
From the cold shores of liverpool,
To the subway trains of NYC,
From the coastline of california,
To the deserts in India,

I imagine,
Yes, I imagine every day,
No matter what people may say,
Or what they may throw my way,
I imagine every day,



Only through yer own eyes can you really start to see mate. Society's not the way, and if it is, it's the wrong one. It's whole concept's based on the assumption that we're all alike, when we're not, we're different, and it's whithing that difference that exists our humanity. So fuck the white collars and the legislatures, the law-makers and the lawyers, the politicians and the lobbiests, the judges and the criminals, the cops and the felons, hang them all, and let them all burn slowly in the pire. Burn the flags and constitutions from every country in the world, disband the nations and bring down the boarders and limits. Burn the wallstreet-behaving bastards along with all the bankers and all the other money-mungering whores who fuck people up for a living. Burn the labels you have on God, abandon the believe that those narrow and hard to walk fucking paths, those box size jails, that all the various religions are, are the only ways to peace and love, 'cuz they really lead only to one place, destruction. And those two things everyone's always yappin' on about, exist withing ourselves, they reside only in our souls, they cannot be found out there in the world. That's why some people are miserable in one particular place and others are happy in the same fucking place. Happiness and peace, we choose to show them or hide them, in the end it's up to you, you wanna be happy? Burn the "social" version of "you", exorcise it if you will, only then will you trully come to know who the fuck you are, what you're fucking made of. See life through your own eyes, not through someone else's. Be yourself, let things be, stop trying to be perfect, and be free, only then will you trully be happy and at peace... CHEERS!
