The Dream Goes On
2’05”

The Dream goes on,
as closer we come to the moment
that will bring us together in love and peace.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident:
That all men are created equal.”
The Dream goes on:
So close have we come to the moment
that will bring us together in love and peace.
We find again the Dream.
The dream that we are one family coming together.
Now we can see again the American vision:
that as brothers and sisters we can live together in peace.
We find again the Dream,
the Dream that we are one.
The Dream goes on…
