The sights I've seen and the fights that there's been,
And now I can't believe what I am seeing. After so much
pain and so much gain, This wild dog now admits it's
finally been tamed.
I can recall standing so proudly and defiant, Just a
small man against an evil twisted giant. But soon more
came and at least it did look to me, That a new dawn was
coming, the dawn of the free.
Drowning in the tears of this dying race, I take a final
look around this glorious place. Now my last goodbye as I
turn and walk away, I did the best I could but I couldn't
save the day.
Victory after victory that's how our river flows, But one
day a battle's lost, that's how this story goes. And I
watched the heads go down, friends turn and walk away,
And I watched a darkened cloud descend upon our day.
So now I'm standing all alone and I am wondering why, So
many of our kind can watch our nation die. Now I'll roam
forever sad and so ashamed, And the honest truth is, we
are all to blame.
