Start Out Brand New by Tiffany Hulse
Another day over and a new one begins.
To have what you have, you just hope this don’t end.
So they come and they look but they don’t have a clue.
They remove and they strip you, and you start out brand new.
So you buy yourself a boat to an island you’ll sail.
Not knowing where you’re going, just a compass on the rail.
It’s your maiden voyage on the high seas alone.
You get worried and scared, but you just can’t call home.
So you finally see the island, the lighthouse ahead.
That will guide you so tight, through the course you’ve been led.
You make your way to the port, you’ve finally reached the end.
And you’re greeted by all of your new island friends.
So you came and they looked, but they never found how,
One poverty struck you, bought a boat island bound.
To the islands you sail, in that great ocean blue.
They’ll never know how, or where to catch you.
