An honest declaration, because Jeffers sees the day when America's promise is fulfilled, when government becomes TRULY of the people, by the people, and for the people.

JUST WAIT AND SEE
We’ll be on our way, as it's written in the books,
But I have to say, it's not the way it looks.
So be careful what you pay. Beware the bait on those hooks.
And then on one fine day, you'll taste what I cooks.
Chorus: Because I’m bein’ what I am, it’s only me.
I see our ship is comin' in, from the sea.
And I'll just sing my song, and turn the key.
And we’ll be sailing free, just wait and see.
Well this love I feel, it will never die.
And am I a heel, if my words make you cry?
On an even keel, the wind will make us fly.
This is the real deal, not no pie in the sky.
Once I went up in smoke, to the mountain top within,
And I took one more toke, tried to see the Light again.
And now I go for broke, and try to have a thick skin,
Kinda like an artichoke, with the heart deep within. (Chorus:)
Now I'm satisfied, with the way I look,
Kinda like Kentucky Fried, the recipe is in a book.
But my time I must bide, 'though I swallowed the hook,
And you can tan my hide, if I’m not a good cook. (Chorus:)
