An American Dream

Wading - wading through the water
A Father and his daughter...
On the way to their own graves.

We're all hoping - for a bit of sunshine,
Waving flags of stars and stripes,
So desperate to get safe.

I have a dream, and I'm making it real,
And I won't conceal...
That I cannot deal with these transgressions.

Na na na - na-na-na and
Doo doo doo - doo-doo-doo and
Ba-by ba-by baby and yeah.

We are marching, blistered feet, and long lines
Holding up our cardboard signs, and
Trying to get someplace.

We’ve gotta rock the vote and more than that,
We've got to be the change.
We have to act because
We are the ones who we've been waiting for.

I have a dream, and I'm making it real,
And I won't conceal...
That I cannot deal with these transgressions.

Na na na - na-na-na and
Doo doo doo - doo-doo-doo and
Ba-by ba-by baby and yeah.

We're saying that America
Is a place you can come to.
Let this message be the one we impart.

Yes, America is a place you can come to...
Where people have heart.

I have a dream, and I'm making it real,
And I won't conceal...
That I cannot deal with these transgressions.

Na na na - na-na-na and
Doo doo doo - doo-doo-doo and
Ba-by ba-by baby and yeah.

We're saying that America
Is a place you can come to.
Let this message be the one we impart.

Yes, America is a place you can come to...
Where people have heart, and
You can make a fresh start.
