Lyrics

 

America Written By James Carie 

 

Born in the land of the free

On a farm where work was hard

Raised on the words of a patriot

Who believed right from wrong

 

A lineage of soldiers

Searching for a decent life

Something that makes it worth it

Where?s the pearl of their great price

 

Refrain

America, You're slipping away

One nation under God, we'd say

 

America, where the people reigned

Why'd we give our heart away,

America 

 

But now my land is ill

Sickened of heart and soul

Staggering under it's own self

Few left to carry the load

 

Constitution and declaration 

What's the meaning of it all?

Call to arms; a new vision

We hear our forefather's call

 

America, You're slipping away

One nation under God, we'd say

 

America, where the people reigned

Why'd we give our heart away,

America 

 

And now our vision is changing

And with it we can watch the slow death

Yes we weep at the funeral of old ways

When America gave us her best

 

A new government is dawning 

A yearning for a city not made with hands

We must trade in our old dreams of riches

Times we're leaving now demands

 

Refrain 

America, You?'e slipping away

One nation under God, we'd say

 

America, where the people reigned

Why'd we give our heart away,

America 

 

We were champions and we went prancing

Across the stages of our time

We were brash; at times conceited

But giving with the lives of our kind

 

Somehow we let the thief in

He stole our rich heart and dreams

And left us fearing and too needy

With few stout hearts left it seems

 

Refrain

America, You're slipping away

One nation under God, we?d say

 

America, where the people reigned

Why'd we give our heart away,

America 

 

But there's a new champion on the horizon

New to many yet ancient of days

He fills our hearts with rejoicing

As we look beyond, to the Kingdom ways

 

Ache for silliness of childhood

We search for a time of no care

Foolishness has brought this darkness

The wisdom of the world is despair

 

Refrain 

America, You're slipping away

One nation under God, we'd say

 

America, where the people reigned

Why'd we give our heart away,

America 

 

What is this sacrifice you speak of

This Kingdom in which we shall live

What colors of this sacred flag

What is the new life we must give

 

His body is forming at once

No longer will I mourn the country I lost

There is a season on the horizon

It?s given to those who pay the cost

 

Refrain

America, You're slipping away

One nation under God, we?d say

 

America, where the people reigned

Why'd we give our heart away,

America 

 

Bridge

Angels sing but they also battle

Battlers and victors also are we

If we faint not in our waiting

We will reap the land and the sea
