All I want is something Beautiful to stay

To always be this way

To never fade away

Beautiful every single day

This Imaginary life that we play

We forget the way

The world has strayed

How beauty has started to fade

How corporate empires cascade

Dying out humanity in their shade

On the young and innocent the government prey

Manipulating everything, by the words they say

All I want is something beautiful to stay

To always be this way

To never fade away

Beautiful every single day

Children stay young and free to play

The air is free from cities polluted spray

Poverty on a downward sway

People’s differences not mockingly placed on Display

Humanity stands up for just one day

All for one and one for all we convey

For hope seems to be possible, if together we pray

All I want is something Beautiful to stay

To always be this way

To never fade away

Beautiful every single day
