Sincere hope for the children of the 21st Century.

lyrics

Caledonia

There’s a land we should know
where the children learn to grow.
From the crib and the cradle
they grow straight and true.
It’s a land of the blessed
& an open treasure chest.
I have been there once or twice--red, white and blue.

Down the corner, ‘round the block,
near the stream by the bus stop,
there’s a chance and an option or two.
From a kiss to a blush to an open royal flush,
it’s a hand and a band of living proof.
It’s a garden summer squash beneath the hanging wash
near the tired treasured moments we watched and grew.

Four-fold, have & hold.
These days you better not catch cold,
‘cause the devil’s on the wing (in the wings), [Chorus]
eating human beings &
leaving hollow shells.
You better watch yourself.

Life may find & grind you down,
pick you up and spin you ‘round.
It will raise your hand and call you too.
The house will still remain
though you are bound to change,
an island adrift on bone and tooth.

[Chorus]
