Born of Woodstock

Born in the middle of the sexual revolution, 
the campaign for peace and the youths' 
exploration of psychedilc drugs,

The world was chaotic, but it was still
about love,

During the "woodstock" era people 
embraced who they were, divesting
themselves of social paradigms,

They sought to be better individuals 
with each daring climb,

The music, and psychosis of the hippy culture,
expressed the core of America, shining truth
on all that went awry while many slumbered
others heeded their patriotic cries for a better
United States.
