Burn Out The Day

Burn Out The Day

We look into hearts of love to unfold
 pause and really think before you write
 Each of us is being examined by the world at large
 With faces in the window having storms in the night

 I think I'll pack it in & buy a pick up
 look to the east cause momma that's where all the fun is...
 Share with others your new found faith
 There is strength in numbers have you forgotten Water Gate.

 Spineless zombies in the river of lust
 Exchanging lust for love to a world in a rush
 Look at what those before us had to go through
 A beautiful array of blissful care

 Shattered glass out on the parchment decorum
 eyes, ears & feet
 A given chance at which to meet & greet
 Warhol had his Campbell Soup Can's

 Jessie Jackson had his slogan, "Yes we can"...
 Rodney King just claimed, "Can't we all just get along".
 Burn out the day, that's the end of this song.
