Song from the band in my head

Verse: 
Society in crisis and free fall
Understand the world? Not at all
So much I never thought I'd see
All is chaos by royal decree
 
Pre-Chorus:
I'm dreaming and I'll surely awake
Before I hit, how much can we take?
 
Verse:
People standing up for everything wrong
History cries for everything gone
Used to be Mt. Rushmore sure
Now all is dark, we flail for the cure
 
Pre-Chorus:
I'm dreaming and I'll surely awake
Before I hit, how much can we take?
 
Chorus:
All is uncertain, all the heroes gone away
Darkness blinds our eyes in the cold light of day 
Turning away from the truth of the matter,
New beasts of burden as absolutes shatter
 
Verse:
Time was when this place made sense
Suddenly our future has become past tense
Left the new right, up is down, black is white,
Will we see the sunrise in this endless night?
 
Pre-Chorus:
I'm dreaming and I'll surely awake
Before I hit, how much can we take?
 
Chorus:
All is uncertain, all the heroes gone away
Darkness blinds our eyes in the cold light of day 
Turning away from the truth of the matter,
New beasts of burden as absolutes shatter
 
END
