I used to see
Fred's posts in my Facebook feed
Our inside jokes were once infinite
But years ago were spoiled by accusations

Gets his soundbyte fix
Sparring over politics
Feels satisfied with each new barb
But wonders why he's trapped in isolation

If we could land a man on the moon
Ask phones to name that tune
Why can't we make ourselves immune to hate's agenda
Someday mankind will solve poverty
Defeat inequality
But we'll fail if animosity is still raging

I have this dream
People from all different creeds
March to declare they've turned the page
Singing a prayer to peace and understanding

If we could land a man on the moon
Help the victims of typhoons
Why can't we make ourselves immune to hate's agenda
Someday mankind will solve poverty
Defeat inequality
But we'll fail if animosity is still raging

If you're worn down by the outrage
I hope you will not disengage
'Cause freedom's spirit is revoked when people won't show up to vote

If we could land a man on the moon
Send a probe to see Neptune
Why can't we make ourselves immune to hate's agenda
Someday mankind will solve poverty
Defeat inequality
But we'll fail if animosity is still raging

One day man will go to the stars
Light years beyond Mars
By then I hope we've healed the scars of our divisions
Song Comments

Over The Moon
Great lyrics, lovely guitar and a very decent melody! Nice one eric!


Po(t)pouri
beautiful vocal, fulsome and intimate, neat strings and drum parts, the lyrics are excellent overall, and nice change of tempo, gives a luxurious patina, does get a toucha 'wise', and perhaps a chorus reinforcing' the title would be welcome, imhv, but perhaps that's a genre value judgment, I dunno...cheers...
