  1. American Grief

From the recording American Grief

Lyrics

 
In a moment of emotionHe terminated connectionHe went upstairsand kissed her on the cheekHe could tell she was driftingIn the realm of uneasy conscienceInnocent and childlikeShould be our dreams In a moment of exhilarationInhibition was forsakenIn the mirror he could seetheir reflectionHe saw their eyes don’t shineEnticing when she was youngerAn impulsive attraction to dangerThe crime hardly rememberedBut we share the pain We have had our fillOf informationWe are standing stillTo catch a breath of airWe are half asleepUnder heavy sedationIn isolationWe don’t weepFor American Grief I remember the singingOur faces turned towards HeavenSongs of adulation for the KingI came back to this placeTo confront my dark emotionsTo taunt my inner demonsTo come to terms I’ve anguished all I canFor the soul of the earthI’ve anguished all I canFor the spirit of ManI’ve anguished all I canFor the killing of the beast   And the raping of landAnd the loss of their homesAnd the American grief    We have had our fillOf informationWe are standing stillTo catch a breath of airWe are half asleepUnder heavy sedationIn isolationWe don’t weepFor American Grief
