When we stand together, we can be at our best
The vision of our forefathers puts us to the test
But who will answer,when they are being called?
The answer is important, as it applies to us all.
We rose up from oppression, and our journey began
A constitution for the people, joined hand in hand
We expanded our borders on our lands and in our minds
With freedom and vision, we left our problems behind
Without the oppression, we could see a different view
With advances and revolution, always something new
With great minds abound, given the freedom to soar
We built up our empire, and then built some more.
We had innovations ranging from railroads to light
We had inventions in automotive, even flight
We had our wars - we fought for what we thought was true
We fought segregation, we put a man on the moon
With over 200 years of greatness, we let freedom reign
But the people of the nation began to call for a change
Our minds turned inward, our emotions a cloud
We spoke these thoughts, and we spoke them loud.
Change is what we called for, and change is what we got
So many people with their own agenda, everyone forgot.
Forgot how we got here, forgot where credit is due
We call it moving forward, yet we do not move.
Now controlled by the media, and a technology disconnect
We give up our freedoms in the name of being politically correct
We don't stand for our rights, we don't stand as a nation
Even as we are in need of a new emancipation
We still discuss each side, and call it freedom in action
But we don't make the choices, not even a fraction.
With a government and people divided, we can't agree
Which limits our progression, we cease to be free
Built upon a dream, a vision of destiny and fate
We were given the chance to make ourselves great
How do we respond to this gift given to us all?
We respond with ignorance, and with hatred we fall.
We need to put an end to this terrible time
We need to find a way, we need to rise
We need to become aware, we each need evolution
We need to be one, because we need a revolution.
