I can't believe this has happened
Can't believe my eyes
That everything I've ever wanted
Is finally realized.
The clouds have parted
The rainbow's started
Everything's perfect, hummingbirds darted
Across the sky, fluttering by
It's so beautiful, I'm about to cry
Look at the sun, shining down on the world
Providing warmth for all the little boys and girls
Eating their ice cream that they got for free.
Because the Ice Cream Truck just crashed into a tree.
There's mothers laughing and having a great time
There's even a guy who's a very good mime.
Entertaining themselves and more importantly each other
Little girls playing with their normally annoying brother
The smiles on their faces show no remorse
Uncaring that they're on what was once a golf course
That hosted fundraisers for the ones that couldn't eat
The ones that these people will never ever meet.
But don't blame them, they're certainly not
The only guilty party, certainly not the only lot
Turn around into the neighborhood that's far downtown
Nobody's walking around with even a glimmer of a frown
In fact, you'd think they were just given the crown
And the huge, shiny golden key to the city
Because all of their faces look so damn pretty.
Whether they be in the grocery store, or in the pawn shop
Indifferent to the fact that in the alley, there's a dead cop.
They all look happy, buying their things
That one really inexpensive gorgeous diamond ring
Where did they get it? Really, nobody cares.
When in reality, they got the ring upstairs
From the widow of a marriage lasting 50 years
And the loss of that ring brings forth infinite tears
Robbing the rich, stealing from the poor
Thieving from the unlucky, and then sold to the first store
That'll give them 50 dollars and a six pack of Coors.
Yeah, this is a world that you really wouldn't hope for
And this isn't the town you'd take your love and elope for
But this is the life that people climb up a slope for
It looks amazing to the naked eye, but that's what your telescope's for.
