"Peaceful Valley Boulevard"

 

One day shots rang across the peaceful valley 
God was crying tears that fell like rain 
Before the railroad came from Kansas City 
And the bullets hit the bison from the train 
Shots rang across the peaceful valley 
White man laid his foot upon the plain. 
 
The wagon train rolled through the dusty canyon 
The settlers full of wonder as they crossed 
A gentle creek where two old oaks were standing 
Before the west was won there was a cost 
A rain of fire came down upon the wagons 
A mother screamed and every soul was lost. 
 
Change hit the country like a thunderstorm 
Ancient rivers soon began to boil 
People rushed like water to California 
At first they came for gold and then for oil 
Fortunes were made and lost in lifetimes 
Mother earth took poison in her soil. 
 
An electro cruiser coasted towards the exit 
And turned on Peaceful Valley Boulevard 
"People make the difference" read a billboard 
Above a long line of idling cars. 
 
Who'll be the one to lead this world 
Who'll be the beacon in the night 
Who'll be the one to lead this world 
Who'll be the beacon in the night 
Who'll be the one to lead the nations 
And protect God's creations 
 
A polar bear was drifting on an ice floe 
Sun beating down from the sky 
Politicians gathered for a summit 
And came away with nothing to decide 
Storms thundered on, his tears of falling rain 
A child was born and wondered why.
