I am somewhere else, far away from this,

The only sound is of birds in the trees happily.

The crime-filled streets and sirens are not with me,

There are no voices of thought to ruin my day I say.

Everything is much louder in the real world today,

Peace seems like a rare, lost, gift that will never be again.

Let me pretend that I am not here where there live trash and fear,

A little bit better, just for a moment, let me pretend.
