Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Birds Of Freedom
 

 
We now live in a global village
We're in the high-tech age
Old communication barriers
Are slowly fading away

We have reached the stars
Do you really want live on Mars?
We may not have a choice someday
If we keep treating the Earth this way

Still too many puzzles here to solve
We should be building bridges, not walls
A simple answer was within reach
But cooperation has begun to cease

Everyone used to look to America
Where the birds of freedom
Spread their wings up high
Everyone used to count on America
To lead the world in all things right
Isolationism has left the world blind

We're going through a big change
For better or for worse?
The question still remains
But America is going in reverse

Tariffs shooting sky high
The world can't trust the lies
Backing out of treaties signed
America alienating it's allies

Politicians pockets are full
Massive corporations now rule
Long-term solutions have gone away
It's now all about the short term gains

Everyone used to look to America
Where the birds of freedom
Spread their wings up high
Everyone used to count on America
To lead the world in all things proud
Isolationism has let the world down
