To Whom It May Concern,

The conversation is long overdue"

Another day has come and gone. Will we wait a thousand years still? We must stand upuninvited and come together once and for allForget those that are comfortably numb. If this is itwhy are we playing these foolish games waiting on the world to change?

Lost in the world of flashing lights where caring is  creepydon't forget to remember me. Don't make me ask what's my name? I am a stronger woman and I will survive. Don't leave your chances to a boy with a coincome with meYou've got a friend and we're in this together. So what do you say?

I know  you can't always get what you want, but love is my religion and I pray for help. All you need is love right? Tell me what the hell superstitiontrouble, or tragedy  you and I cannot stop in the name of love ?

Raise your glass with me my dear countryfor all we know  this could be our last chance. I can't fight this feeling anymore. This is our time,  our  chance. There is no giving up. My generation won't get fooled again!

Through their pretty vacant lying eyes are you beginning to see the light? Others may be caught up in the rapture of their semi charmed life, but who will save YOUR soulWe are the tide, this is our house and we won't be blown away, left to be walking on broken glass. We are good enough and strong enoughwhy worry where or whenDream on and express yourselfTell mehow's it going to be?

I'm not building a mystery here -- everybody's somebody's fool, but why does it have to be youLook what you've done and all these things that I've done, we can change the world and bring back that peaceful easy feelingHelp me pleaseDistance makes who we are stronger. We are connected in solidarity forever my blood brothers and sisters.

Love always,
