„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.“

America
Song lyrics, The Jazz Singer (1980)

The mind, the music breathing from her face, 19

And oh, that eye was in itself a soul!“
