Life in America:

the Greatest Land there is.

Stuck in America:

The land where you don't have to be a whizz.

or accomplish as little as there is to accomplish,

but in the end, at the end of the road of trees,

you'll just know that you are just another fish

swimming in the unfathomable, endless sea.

Been too long away from distant shores,

now this shore that I call home still seems mildly hostile,

but still I greet each awkward encounter with a pained smile.
