Our Nation was built on the blood that it shed

In order to be free, two million dead


It brought us together and delivered us as one

Uniting all ages from elder to young


Shure it caused a great toll that we had to pay

But we paid it together so that we may proclaim:


"We have conquered a lion and agreed to fight

Every problem by ourselves and by our own might

because this battle has shaped us like hammer on steel

and now we will not just stand on our heels"


We have kept pressing on because of this history

and because of this event we have gained all our glory


How could we have done this and opened the door

To the American dream? Well, it was nothing; but a war.
