Mike Lacey

The search for purpose weathers broken dreams
Through every promise that isn't what it seems
Where greed and slander are tools for going far
Another crossroads, defining who we are

It's like the world has lost it's way, makes you yearn for yesterday

Each politician's word is guaranteed
With plans providing all your wants and needs
The press'll run it, spinning what they choose
When propoganda masquerades as news

Most of what you hear and see, don't reflect reality

Vows of trust are straining, hope is wearing thin
Tracking down the truth's like fencin' off the wind
It's time to stand for something or struggle even more
Principles are sacred, and worth the fightin' for

We've been divided, by casting right and wrong
Agendas weaken bonds that make us strong
Insults the honor of heroes' memories
Whose sacrifices keep us safe and free

So make a difference if you dare, with all the passion you can spare

Chorus [Gathering the truth . . . ]
