One More Round - Catherine David

    In my childhood textbook, the world's a different place,
    Lovely sphere of green and blue in space.
    Now that we know better, the photographs are in,
    Swirl of clouds where continents have been.

    One more round, let's go out and paint the town,
    One more round, can't take in what I have found,
    One more, one more round.

    On the office table, give the globe a spin,
    Who paints England yellow and red Berlin.
    The more my eyes are opened, the more the colors run,
    so let's step off this crazy quilt for fun.

    It's not that we don't care anymore,
    It's just not the way we planned it.
    It's just that it's not there anymore,
    my imaginary planet.
