lyrics

Watching the old man gazing and wondering
What ever happened to my street
This isn't my America
My fathers Yellow Brick Road...sold
Out from under our feet

And I have seen him
Unable to find his way home
Faded flag on his front porch
No longer a beacon of hope

What was I fighting for
You can take it back if this is my reward
(This isn't my America)
The powers that be continue to ignore
This was my America
It isn't anymore
Freedom to believe
In something bigger than me
Yesterday maybe
The Greatest Generation in history
What have you done for one of them
Lately

Imperfect crosses lined up in a perfect row
I guess it's all for show
Jesus shows up in a crossword puzzle
Every now and then
You never write him in

I have seen Veterans standing outside in the cold
Sleepless nights and one sided conversations
Now fighting their battles alone
Jane and John Doe

What was I fighting for
You can take it back if this is my reward
(This isn't my America)
The powers that be Continue to ignore
This was my America
It isn't anymore
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

What was I fighting for
You can take it back if this is my reward
(This isn't my America)
The powers that be Continue to ignore
This was my America
It isn't anymore
