Elsewhere



Some other place is better and sure to needs equate
Find the "milk and honey" land
to build your grand estate

Some other pond is fuller and sure to yield more fish
Cast lines in magic waters
to catch the one you wish

Some other thrill is bigger and sure to keep you high
Play on the edge of never
to find pie in the sky

Some other loam is richer and sure to bear more fruit
Plant the seeds in noble soil
to let the strains enroot

Some other love is warmer and sure to lust inspire
Establish exacting goals
to meet your heart's desire

Some other dream is greater and sure to satisfy
Seek ultimate perfection
to realism deny
