Imagine a new Minneapolis—
a whole new world begins
where couches and cars aren’t burning,
where empathy isn’t a sin.

Imagine a new Minneapolis
where love and truth are twins,
where righteousness falls on target,
where beauty is deeper than skin.

Imagine a new Minneapolis
set free from grief and pain,
where friends and lovers are laughing
as they bathe in the purple rain.

Imagine a new Minneapolis
where chauvinism ends,
where rivers flow with new water,
where the people can breathe again.
