One and One

Two kids from different worlds they grow up to reject find meaning with each other in music.

Mary was born in golden summer
She was the Wall St. wizard’s daughter
With money to burn all her seasons warm and green.
She got all she wanted, but she was haunted by visions of world poverty.
Her poetry was how she learned to speak.

Chico was born a real Rock n’ Roller
Sippin’ daddy’s beer riding on his shoulders.
His mother believed he would live her college dream.
As that boy became a man he had a different plan
He hated his school, but he loved his band
Music was his heart’s only release.

chorus: One body one world, one boy one girl,
Seeking mystery in their lives when it’s all been done before.

Escape for Mary was parties and shows in places she was forbidden to go
But to feel alive you’ve gotta walk on the edge sometimes.
That’s where she found Chico dancing up near the stage
They twisted their bodies to the deafening rage
Sharing fragmented futures in a common frame of time.

Where do you go when you walk a different road
That isn’t on the maps that you are given?
Your final goal can’t be expressed in sacks of gold
The metal cannot hold you when you’re reeling
From lack of meaning in your life!

chorus twice

Notes and letters were brought together in the body of a song
Chico and Mary had found a common ground …to walk on!
chorus twice
