Built on a foundation that was stolen and returned
Confused on where to go, the family mourned
Crane; Towering over the plot of land
Crying, as they see their home gone
From small apartment to empty lawn
Frame, A picture frame found on the ground
Conflicted as we look over the Long Island Sound
Car, A car rolls up all black waiting
The man walks out with the plans waiting
The city looks towards the north to see what he’s creating
A year has passed
An area brand new
New homes and people
But at what cost
But the cost of the normalcy of the oppressed
Created to give up their life, for the improvement of the rest.
The man wakes up from his dream
The man starts the day
Holding onto the plans he knows will hurt
Holding onto the plans that will improve his worth
But at what cost.
