Flower Power

FLOWER POWER - Written by Carroll Bryant


Have you seen my sanity 
Wandering around somewhere in this town
It should be standing next to my vanity
Partners in crime
Looking up at the sky

Give me freedom
Give it to me
Or give me death and bury me
Don't forget my memory
Let me live forever in the children's dreams

Do you know of my misery
Crying in the dark
Playing in Yoctangee Park
Could it be my sensitivity
It stands there mocking time
And dancing in the sky

Give me freedom
Give it to me
Or give me death and bury me
Don't forget my memory
Let me live forever in every child's fantasy

Have you heard of camaraderie? 
Hand to hand like you and me
To all of us we will be
Do you stand in die or need?

Holding back the abstract as butterflies fill the sky
Do you see their poverty?
If you don't then I know that you can't believe
In the things that you need to believe in
Believe me

Have you seen my sanity 
Wandering around somewhere in this town
It should be standing next to my vanity
Partners in crime
Looking up at the sky

Give me freedom
Give it to me
Or give me death and bury me
Don't forget my memory
Let me live forever in the children's dreams

Give me freedom
Give it to me
Or give me death and bury me
Don't forget my memory
Let me live forever in every child's fantasy
