This sticker’s on an automobile.
It has a dream that’s unattainable.
Yes, it’s a very vain appeal.
Who’s out there seeking for an ideal,
when gods are unexplainable?
That sticker on any automobile
is a sarcastic way to conceal
a peace that is not sustainable.
I tell you, it’s a vain appeal.
The concept has a tendency to reel
you in. You think it is explainable?
The sticker found on some automobile
attracts attention with its pretty teal
color. But it’s not obtainable.
Coexistence is nothing but ordeal.
Don’t put away your sword of steel.
Soldiers, you are strong and trainable.
All those stickers on a junked automobile
are nothing but some vain appeal.
