We raise our flag as a symbol of patriotism
We place our hand over our heart to the pledge of allegiance
We say on our currency in God we trust
Yet we don't govern our laws according to Gods word
We take from the poor and give to the rich
We won't provide free health care for people
Who are not able to afford it
We give big tax breaks to big corporations
They take our american jobs over seas for cheaper labor
We give tax breaks to insurance companies 
they in return raise our health care premiums
We go to other countries and fight for thier freedom
Yet the president won't take the lead 
and grant the District of Columbia full voting rights in congress
We tell our children one thing and we do another
They hear us on the phone saying how we hate each other 
sister against sister brother against brother
Envy bitterness unforgivess could this represent God I wonder?
