Let's start with hope

The ripples won, son of a gun

Some would not have thought so
G G7
But I stand here commander in chief
Cm
And I take that seriously

Verse 2 :
Cm
But along the way
Cm
A rogue ripple turned tidal wave
Cm Cm
In reaction to, what I tried to do

A rebirth of a nation's hatred

Red, white, and blue Is black in there too?

Seriously?

One man

Rewriting the book on bad behavior

Maybe cheats the neighbors

Feels he gets what they payed for

We can't

Pat him on the back and send him on through,

No man's ignorance will ever be his virtue

Let's talk of fear

And why I don't bring it in here

Fear makes a false friend indeed

He's history repeating

After all we've done,
G
Every battle hard one,
Cm
Every hair gone gray

In this name of this place

In a history plagued

With in-credible mistakes
Cm
Still I pledge my allegiance to these
G G7
U-nited Divided States
Cm
Seriously?

Cm

Let's end with why
Cm
It's a question I
Cm Cm
Want to ask of us, as a populace

Why not take our time
G G7
Or the weight of the story

Seriously
