Visions

I have visions in my dreams
Of lonely people on lonely streets
I have visions in my dreams
Of quiet schools with empty seats

I have visions while I work
Of scattered people in scattered towns
I have visions while I eat
And it’s too late to stop it now

Something will happen
I have foreseen a sudden change
Something strange is coming
And no one can stop the pain

I’ve envisioned many things
And they have all come true
And this, my friends, is just the same
We’ve played our hands and lost the game

Some say “Let there be peace on earth”
But what they have in mind
Is a piece of a different kind

There’s peace among friends
And foes alike
But I speak of shadowed silence…
