Goodnight, America

Goodnight, America
Go to sleep now, sweet prince
I’m leaving you to your dreams
I’m off to chase the sun

I gazed through the holy sepulcher
And I witnessed the white moon in a sky of deepening, dark blue.
Through silent clouds, barely hidden from view,
Over the southwestern, red desert.
Two riders are approaching now.
Goodnight, America.
