" AMERICA "

We Pledge Our Allegiance
as children in school
And then we are taught
that old Golden Rule
We learn about pride
and how freedom rings
That justice will serve
in all of these things
They say to be proud
of wars we have won
Let's take a good look
at what they have done
There's Saudi, Korea
and Viet Nam to
But lets not forget
World War 1 and 2
Yet also there's others
that ask for our aide
Because we are strong
and they're so afraid
They say we are called
the land of the free
But I'm not so sure
I really agree
You see, we're the ones
who's paying the cost
Of all who have died
and bodies now lost
Yet right here at home
our war's never end
We fight to survive
and pray that we win
The drugs and abuse
are out there each day
And racism still
has not gone away
It's almost as though
we've learned to accept
The promises made
that never are kept
There's people that live
in boxes out there
With no food to eat
and no-one to care
We saw Waco held
with flames all around
And children have guns
they're not putting down
A bombing took lives
of babies that day
It also took mothers
and fathers away
There's times I can see
that shiny black wall
With names of the ones
I don't know at all
I see the white crosses
on graves that they share
Yet nobody knows
who's buried in there
Then high on a pole
"Old Glory" will wave
With honor and pride
above every grave
It seems man has made
his own destiny
He's eaten once more
from Satan's sweet tree
And look what this knowledge
has taught everyone
That we should be proud
of wars we have won
If we can take men
and travel in space
Then why can't we heal
our own human race
It's still up to us
if we really care
PLEASE wake up "AMERICA"
we're dying out there
