We’ve also included a recording of a live performance that Dave and Jason Producer Jason did of “The Autism Spectrum Rainbow Connection.” Dave re-wrote the lyrics to “The Rainbow Connection” and performed this song for the Autism Council of Utah on Thursday, April 11, 2013, in Salt Lake City. There is an audio recording within this podcast episode, but the video of this performance can be viewed below:

The Autism Spectrum Rainbow Connection
Lyrics by Dave Eaton

Why are there so many souls with autism?
When will we find the cause?
Inroads and enhancements and therapeutic advancements
Allows for an ephemeral applause

But we’re just getting started
No one’s more lion-hearted
Than the mother of an autistic child
Someday we’ll find it the cause and the reason
the dreamers, the believers and I

Who says that every wish can’t come to fruition if we’re focused and unified?
Some ardently advocate… Some opt to educate, others are just wondering why

What’s truly amazing is the brushfire blazing and awareness ever on the increase
Someday we’ll find it the cause and the reason
the dreamers, the believers and me

Autism Council of Utah
Caretakers, parents, resources

Have you been up at night
Pondering your child’s plight
Or what their future might be like
Inroads and enhancements and therapeutic advancements
alterations in the DSM-V

But we’re just getting started
No one’s more lion-hearted
than the loved ones of an autistic child
Someday we’ll find it the cause and the reason
the dreamers, the believers and I

Note: The original “Rainbow Connection” was written by Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher.
