For the first time in my life I feel a new sensation
I'm questioning my beliefs, they've shaken my foundation.
 
My bedrock belief in the basic good of humanity,
our ability to adapt and overcome, not with what I see
 
Doubt and uncertainly, so many questions cloud my mind,
afraid of the future, afraid of what I'll find,
 
The angry scream is now mainstream, the things some believe, 
buying into the con of outrages that are meant to deceive
 
Doubt of our wisdom, doubt that we'll come around,
doubt of our overall political intelligence, of our sights and sounds.
 
National trance seems to have cast us longer days,
uncertain of our attitudes, uncertain of a way
 
to bring us back till we stand in the light again,
uncertain of our ability to be the rational, thinking men
 
No one wants to hear that society's fallen a bit,
but it has, that's what I see from where I sit.
