    >> california's child (mp3)


    California bounty
    Never stood long nor still
    While the ambition of growth
    Met suburban land fill

    Passing over the pavement
    90 nose to nose speed
    Looking up at the poles
    From the backseat of greed

    I remember a child
    Caught lost in the race
    Who forgot how to smile
    A segregated embrace

    Jet-stream purple pink
    Setting suns each warm night
    The broken skating rinks
    The kid's guns out to fight

    The parents who let go
    For malls of cash delight
    Tattoos of suicidal
    And tendencies that might

    The broken shards of labor
    On the backs of wetted favor
    Tastes a Californian flavor
    Pays the billionaire's waiver

    So the state of being golden
    Would never come to wealth
    Would never be emboldened
    Or be conscious of itself

    The land of nature's bounty
    Covered in the glut of speed
    The children run away
    For fear of parent's greed
