The Last Dog And Pony Show

I’m going a hundred miles an hour.
Some say that’s way to fast.
But, I’m heading to my future
and, not living in their past..

They can have their needless wars
They can have all their lies
I’m heading to a different place,
with peace and compromise..

They can keep their worthless money
they worship like the god above
I’m going to another place,
that thrives on compassion and love..

There’s no need to follow me,
if you doubt this place is true.
Because, where I’m going to..
It won’t be true for you…
