New America

Lyrics | Track Details

Do you know the cost of future misery? Have you lost your sense of sustainability?
We are just a step away from realizing what we strive to be
But we've got to break out from this insulated blind and lame senility

Wake up the new America Wo-oh!
Transcend the mass hysteria Wo-oh!
Change is the thing you're wary of Wo-oh!
We need a new America Wo-oh!

Laurels, human triumph, bestowments from the past
Victories don't mean a thing if they don't last
We are just marching toward extinction with blinders on our eyes
Jeopardizing everything we've learned and come to realize
You call that wise?

Open your eyes America Wo-oh!
See through the lies they tell us Wo-oh!
Confront the fears that worry us Wo-oh!
We need a new America Wo-oh!

We don't have to be afraid to reinvent
We've got to start to build, progress, and implement
For when we take our fill, and never pay the price
We only build ourselves a fleeting, false paradise

You can live in staunch denial and mark me as your enemy
But I'm just a voice among the throng who want a brighter destiny
They say with me

We are the new America Wo-oh!
This is the new America? Wo-oh
