Hiding in plain view

\"\"

I often seek to be away and far from the rumblings in life,
Just where is still a mystery and beyond the cliffs of strife
I'd like to think its reachable and near as perhaps my nose
Someplace I could cry or laugh orscream if I so chose
I'd like to think the sun would shine in my valley over the hill
And that I would dance and never know the draft or the chill
Of life and it's uncertainties and constant cries of war
We fight for freedom and the right to die, the right fight no more
So I will stand over here, shh, I'm right next to you
And I will never make a sound while I'm hiding in plain view.
