I look around me and I see
A world unlike it used to be,
A world that shifts from up to down
Wherein the truth is rarely found.
And people do not understand
The troubles that beset our land.
They hear the cries, they hear the lies
But most never hear nor ask the whys.
They are content to sit and wait
While evil forces storm the gate.
Most of the few who understand
Refuse or cannot assume command.
If one does presume to try
He quickly learns he must not pry
Into the secrets that there abound
Where truth is never, ever found.
Statesmanship has left the land,
It’s politicians who now stand
To speak great things they never do.
We the people, me and you,
Are left to wonder at the mess
They keep calling a great success.
Once in office our leaders try
Never to have to say good-bye.
Oh, I’ll vote mine back in,
But yours, he should never win.
I heard somebody the other day
Say that Christians are in the way,
They should leave their God in church
And quit talking ‘bout Him so much.
Besides He don’t belong in politics,
Jefferson said God and State don’t mix.
Now I’ve been around quite a while
And traveled the road many a mile.
Wherever I went I found God there,
Actually, I discovered He’s everywhere.
So how can you separate Him from anything?
When He’s always there and He’s your King.
We tried to evict Him from our schools
But He was there watching educated fools
Telling the students they could be
Gods themselves, like you and me.
It’s the same old lie Satan told Eve
Is that really what you believe?
I’m afraid that acceptance of such a belief
Is why there is great trouble getting relief
From problems now destroying what used to be
The home of the brave and the land of the free.
