Changing Of The Guard

Contemplating anarchy is it our demise

Torn in half the shattered dreams

That we have left behind

Smiling faces shaking hands

Selling of a nation's soul

Whispers of the the old man

In the shadowed halls

How long till we fall

A recognized democracy

A shining city on the hill

What happened to the points of light

And do we have them still

We don't believe its time for change

It is time we must change back

To force the strong to feed the weak

An imminent collapse

How long till we fall...

When theres a changing of the guard

What will be left to defend

Choices made a nation bleeding

Blinders on so no one's seeing

When theres a changing of the guard

What will be left to defend

Much smarter men than me

Wrote of a grand experiment

We were given a republic

Now's the time to keep it

Two hundred years this flame has burned

When theres a changing of the guard

What will be left to defend

Choices made a nation bleeding

Blinders on so no one's seeing

When theres a changing of the guard

What will be left to defend
