East & West



You are from the east
I am from the west
Are we so different
Let us see
I grew up wild and free
You grew up in a jail
But in my west
The Bankers made money
From me and took it too
As the price for their dreams
In your east
They dragged you to
Be part of their fantasies
Both halves with a flag
And a credo
And both liars

Each in their way
But now we can at least meet
The only barrier money
Not walls and wire now
Are we that different?
You make the call
And decide
If tenderness can grow
Between us
