State of the Union Lyrics

1. State of the Union (4:36)
Decline and fall
We once stood so tall
The future was at our command
But the years of neglect erased the years of respect
Now we bury our heads in the sand

We got so used to taking life so easy
Made us soft - it made us weak
Everything's been handed to us
Freedom we take for granted
See right through the enemy promises they make
Simple topics -
Ideas for simple minds mass consumption
Soothing words meant to sedate you1

Out of sight - Out of mind
Tunnel vision - future blind
Gamble with the fate of the next generation
For the short term bottom line

Once we had such pride and believed in the leaders we could trust
To protect and to serve
Seem like so many empty words
Who can we turn to now
Power is held in the hands of the few
A status they seek to maintain
O say can you see the burning oil fields
Who profits this time? Answer me!

One day - we the people might be in control
One dream - to create a world far beyond war
One hope - more money spent to educate than to kill
Last chance - we hold it in our hand
One voice - who will be the one - is it you?

Social classes stratified - population pacified
Self-expression suppressed
Apathy prevalent - democracy irrelevant
Diagnosis terminal - prognosis is grim
