Sandy's surreal.

She left me without a meal, a place to sleep, and little to feel.

Abandoned 'cept for the nightsky--no time to cry.

Frozen in shock, because you're cold as ice, Beach.

Don't think twice, I'll be alright.

Though deeply forlorn, Jersey strong...for that we're known. Not long to roam, I'll find a new home.

I have many brothers and sisters,

who do more than listen. Once again I'll glisten like the nightsky, when next you pass us by--we'll play the HAARP and say goodbye. You're no longer welcome here.
