To heal the Black Canyon

A flashback on the Hoover Dam

Turning weird waves into WATTS,

igniting hopes of a nation,

making a dusty valley,

into a soothing greenfield.

It's Engineers who saw the breakthrough,

to bring impossibility to a reality,

like concrete of the Dam,

that teamwork was rock-solid,

was strengthening day by day,

from ironic hands of the workers.

When wicked waves try,

to destroy that bond,

The Dam stands still,

as a proud giant.

The spirit of the souls,

who gave lives with no fear,

to see this in their eyes,

will keep healing the Dam,

with forever blowing wind.
