I used to believe things would work out,

we'd right the ship but now I have my doubts

 

You can't fix a problem if some refuse to see,

the shining city on a hill that's what we used to be

 

We used to be an example for others to strive for,

we used to have compassion, but not anymore

 

We used to be educated, we used to be wise,

we used to have common sense, open your eyes
