Came back from Rome Redo

Came back from Rome
Fellin’ kinda’ empty
Walking the river
Maidens and their dogs
Water taxis taking tourist for rides
The homeless too occupying benches to keep their cool
Don’t kowtow to a person
Bow to a King
Be a yes man in another man’s dream
Part of me wants the other part to knell
Authoritarian another word for Dictator
Happens in the blink of an eye
One day you’re free, next day you die
My grandfather came here with ten dollars in his pocket
The American Dream turned inside out
I can’t tell you the truth
I wear a red hat just like Trump
Walking the river
Maidens and their dogs
Water taxis taking tourist for rides
The homeless too occupying benches to keep their cool
“Tear down this wall,” or build one to keep people out
You can’t prove God doesn’t exist
Don’t kowtow to a person
Bow to a King
Be a yes man in another man’s dream
Authoritarian, another name for dictator
Happens in the blink of an eye
One day you’re free, next day you die
Came back from Rome fellin’ kinda’ empty
Like I left something behind
