Heads are spinnin, The world still sturns.
Towers crumble and, bridges still burn.
It seems like once you cross over, it's just so-so hard to get back.
I believe it's time that, we the people, are told just a little bit of truth.
Will you even hear the, invitation,
When the bombs start fallin' on this Lost Nation?

Eyes are open, but hearts are closed.
Feet keep a walkin', we're in a hurry you know.
We can't slow down for no mirrors, too afraid we might really see ourselves.
Don't you think it's time we, come together, and find a piece of common ground.
Or will you only see your, situation, when the fire starts rainin' on this Lost Nation?

I pledge allegiance to the flag that waives.
I pledge my soul to the God that saves.
The ground might a shook in September.
But on this solid rock I'm gonna stand
I believe it's time that, we the people, keep an eye on the eastern sky.
There will be no time for, hesitation, when He comes back to redeem us and this Lost Nation!
