„Home,
Don't it seem so far away?
Oh, we're traveling light today,
In the eye of the storm.
In the eye of the storm.Home,
To a new and a shiny place.
Make our bed and we'll say our grace.
Freedom's light burning warm.
Freedom's light burning warm.“

—  Neil Diamond, Song lyrics, The Jazz Singer (1980), America

The mind, the music breathing from her face, 19
