Story behind the song
Trying to find words to describe the feelings the evening of 911. The characters of Disneyland that didn't have to report to work that night (along with the Amusement Park itself) seemed like the perfect setting. Disneyland and the USA are interconnected images.
Lyrics
Disneyland is Closing Written by: Elton Costello There's some trouble on Manhattan Island now Too many lost, not enough found I can't believe I cried The planes don't fly Everybody's tryin' To figure out why Souls climb toward the clear blue sky God looks on with a comforting sigh In a holy war where everyone's right Even the White House has a sermon tonite The Hall of Presidents is dark inside Mickey Mouse just covered up his eyes Space Mountain and the Waterslides Time has stopped but we still got time for those crazy rides But tonite i'll find the blessings in my life and count them one at at time Even Disneyland is closing down tonite Well I'm headin' to the mountainside To find out what I'm feelin inside Somethin' about a time of war that makes me wonder about what my life is for And only god knows what's wrong or right Sometimes you get too close to one side you don't see the light Maybe i'll head to the beach Put my feet in the sand Imagine a world With peace in every land The Hall of Presidents is dark inside Mickey Mouse just covered up his eyes Space Mountain, The Waterslides Time has stopped but we still got time for those crazy rides But tonite i'll find the blessings in my life and count them one at at time Even Disneyland is closing down tonite
