if you don't know who Kansas is, geht educated :)

Virgin land of forest green, dark and stormy plains, here all life abounds
Sunlit valley, mountain fields, unseen in the rain, here all life abounds
No man rules this land, no human hand has soiled this paradise
Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich in Earth's delights

Painted desert, sequined sky, stars that fill the night, here all life abounds
Rivers flowing to the sea, sunshine pure and bright, here all life abounds
No man rules this land, no human hand has soiled this paradise
Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich in Earth's delights

So the maiden lies in waiting, for the sails to reach the shore
Land of beauty and abundance, innocent, you opened wide your door
Wanderers found the waiting treasure, full of gifts beyond their measure
Milk and honey for our pleasure.....

Across the sea there came a multitude, sailing ships upon the wave
Filled with visions of Utopia, and the freedom that they crave
Ravage, plunder, see no wonder, rape and kill and tear asunder
Chop the forest, plow it under.....

Highways scar the mountainsides, buildings to the sky, people all around
Houses stand in endless rows, sea to shining sea, people all around
So we rule this land, and here we stand upon our paradise,
Dreaming of a place, our weary race is ready to arise

I always end up rhyming eventhough I hate it. So my first thought when I read this was "hmmm, repetative and rhyming" But looking again I can't help but like the poetic visualisation. I can see everything you mention asif I was there. Nice one, but as the name states, it needs music to stay interresting (thats my opinion anyway...) :)

Uhm , sorry but why are you posting unoriginal stuff in this forum ?
I dunno anything about this place so don't get me wrong, but why post something that was already written by someone else loooong ago ? I'm sure you like it, but atleast inform my ignorant person that you didn't write it next time :) Thanks! :thumbsup:
