Rosy eyed, flowers bloom
Put on these shades and see what I do
Join me I implore you, join me for the ride
Can’t you just feel the pride of the great divide?
Don’t mind these bumps along the path
These are just hardships from the past
Onward and forward, let’s hurry along,
Lest you linger and see what’s truly wrong
See the smiles and hear the cheers?
I said exactly what they wanted to hear
That’s why they came to me don’t you know?
I provide a free ride after all
A voice of reasoning whispers in my ear
Toss the specs and see with eyes clear
Smiles and cheers now jeers and sneers
What first was rosy now appear clear
So please shed a tear for what you once held dear.
You went on the ride feeling tremendous pride
Now you find out you believed all the lies
You gave up clear eyes for rosy shades
Instead of full hearts you’re left with ace of spades.
We’re stuck on the ride while it lasts
Let’s hope for the best while it runs its path
I pray we don’t get stuck and of course get struck
But I don’t know about this lame duck.
