Gazing out from eyes bloodshot and stained with tears,
The light grows stronger and now we start to see
That’s what the intention always was, you know
The intention deep down inside that’s been set free
As history often does and always will repeat itself
The good, the bad, the ugly and the Greed,
Remember that when our ancestors came up against the immovable,
The unchangeable, the force that set out to make them bleed.
Instead of hanging their heads or running in fear,
They not only stood their ground, they took it back
We live free because they took no substitute for real freedom
How could we ever let that line go slack?
We live today because they refused to give in or give up,
They knew true freedom could never survive that way
They knew that once the fear and doubt took hold of you
It’d eat you alive and with your freedom, you would pay.
So they fought and though they may have lost a few,
A few battles and even more than a few friends
They knew and we should remember this, too
Only when we unite will the Devastation end.
No matter your political views or feelings
No matter your party, position or place
No matter your age or sexual preference
No matter your gender or your race.
You and I, we, we are all in this together
In for a penny, in for a pound, every cent
Let’s not let our petty differences stop us
From showing this Devastation its end.
