Song from the band in my head

Verse:
From the third world to the land of the free
Whether you fool yourself so you cannot see,
There's a crisis of beliefs, a crisis of ideals
In the way we think, we act, see and feel
 
Pre-Chorus:
Lost children screaming, afraid and alone
Thrashing and lashing out at monsters unknown
 
Verse:
The change has come and we are the change
While looking outward, lost our grip on the sane
Blame and sadness reflects from the mirror
Ruled by our demons, ruled by our fear
 
 
Pre-Chorus:
Lost children screaming, afraid and alone
Thrashing and lashing out at monsters unknown
 
Chorus:
The crisis has come to our once-certain shores,
Can no longer see what we've been searching for
The certainty of we used to believe,
Replaced by a blindness to the truth we see
 
Verse
 
Surrounded by delusioners who sleepwalk a dream
Hurtling toward the abyss, chaos reigns supreme
The sound of silence and lack of a fight
Signals descent into the void of eternal night
 
Pre-Chorus:
Lost children screaming, afraid and alone
Thrashing and lashing out at monsters unknown
 
Chorus:
The crisis has come to our once-certain shores,
Can no longer see what we've been searching for
The certainty of what we used to believe,
Replaced by a blindness to the truth we see
 
END

Thanks, Hull--got a comment on my pay site saying the lines were a bit ragged in places--writing lyrics is a bit different than writing poems; 'cause it's all how you'd sing it
