    As a city close to my heart, it pains me to see Cleveland dying. Having recently visited over the holidays, I can witness to the utter decay of the city. Major sections of the formerly bustling industrial sector look like a warzone.

    But maybe there is hope yet...

    Sad, really

    Wish there was an easy answer. Maybe Cleveland needs to downsize into smaller city that is sustainable

    Well it is downsizing...less than 500,000 people now, down from over a million in its heyday.

    I went back to ohio
    but my city was gone
    there was no train station
    there was no downtown
    south howard had disappeared
    all my favorite places
    my city had been pulled down
    reduced to parking spaces
    a, o, way to go ohio
    well i went back to ohio
    but my family was gone
    i stood on the back porch
    there was nobody home
    i was stunned and amazed
    my childhood memories
    slowly swirled past
    like the wind through the trees
    a, o, oh way to go ohio
    i went back to ohio
    but my pretty countryside
    had been paved down the middle
    by a government that had no pride
    the farms of ohio
    had been replaced by shopping malls
    and muzak filled the air
    from seneca to cuyahoga falls
    said, a, o, oh way to go ohio
