For a Moment you Believed

The a fictive line they call it border control 

a stone that shines they’ve named it gold 

metal coins that call it currency 

look at the oppinion poll 


a chain of actions and accidents 

a breach of promise mr. president 

paper pushers keep seated pleas e

they do as they are told 


for a moment you believed your own lie

that you were going home this Christmas night 

to share the joy with a family 

to feel safe at home 

but then you come to realize 

the future doesn’t look that bright 

you ankles twinge as you try to walk 

you stand at the edge alone 


a paperboy and a papergirl 

paper money and paper work 

some paper thin paper notes 

a peper doll reciting quotes 


paperjam in the paper feed 

bereaucrazy must be impeached 

a paperclip for the paper trail 

we are going off the rail 


for a moment you believed your own lie

that you were going home this Christmas night 

to share the joy with a family 

to feel safe at home 

but then you come to realize 

the future doesn’t look that bright 

you ankles twinge as you try to walk 

you stand at the edge alone
