From the band in my head

Verse:
A train to nowhere our nation has become
A disaster to me, a playground for some
They don't mind living in the new third-world
Into a nightmare we've all been hurled
 
Pre-Chorus:
Has anyone seen our common sense?
All in danger of becoming past-tense
 
Verse:
Witches and warlocks given free rein
To scream down the road to insane
Whatever happened to seeing is believing? 
Gullible people so ripe for deceiving
 
Pre-Chorus:
Has anyone seen our common sense?
All in danger of becoming past-tense
 
Chorus:
I tried to understand but I tried in vain
Just shadows standing in the pouring rain
Brother verses brother in the new civil war
The specter of deception darkens our door
 
Verse:
Being civil forgotten in this time called now
Think we understand but we're forgotten how
 Historians hence will shrug and wonder why,
How we ever let democracy go under and die
 
Pre-Chorus:
Has anyone seen our common sense?
All in danger of becoming past-tense
 
Chorus:
I tried to understand but I tried and failed
In the battle for souls superstition prevailed
Brother verses brother in the new civil war
The specter of deception darkens our door
 
END
