Today, today is the 1st of May
Everything around us
Everything a lie
Your hearts beating fast
As we race through the dark
Past the really good people
Who do what they’re told

What will be my name
In the USA?
Hold my hand and
I’ll take you there
Who will I become
In the USA?
Hold my hand and
I’ll take you there

Sophie and Lev are running away
These are the days
The days of gloom
Lev can’t smile and Sophie can’t sing
A mile to the future
Where tomorrow is king

What will be my name
In the USA?
Hold my hand and
I’ll take you there
Who will I become
In the USA?
Hold my hand and
I’ll take you there

I don’t need to know
Know where you are
Only that you are
Safe in this world
Then I’ll be content
Get on with my life
Eat, drink and sleep
Look up at the stars

What will be my name
In the USA?
Hold my hand and
I’ll take you there
Who will I become
In the USA?
Hold my hand and
I’ll take you there

    Just because it's bright, modern and 21st Century doesn't mean this isn't as good as anything he did in 1972. It is.
