With everything that's happened ,

a lot has been said .



Wars have come and gone

and we have buried our dead .



The past has past ,

we have to live here in the now .



America here today is different somehow.



The streets of tomorrow ,

we have yet to walk on .



But the foundations

are the same we build upon.



In New York

we still have the homeless on the street .



Help if you can , look around ,

get them to their feet .



Someone's son or daughter ,

abused somewhere in town .



The rich became poor

and the walls came falling down .



In the USA Freddy and Fanny have gone .



Wall Street dived

and down went major corporations .



In Detroit,

retrenchments without explanations .



They've just reopened the Statue Of Liberty .

What does the word freedom mean in society ?



Camp David's chapels begun communications ,

with new nondenominational relations .

Guantanamo Bays closing down operations .



Americas talking to all leading nations .



With dedication there can be a way forward .

Out of confusion and to be in one accord ,

with what's going on in America today .



The media influence is in all we say .

Let me remind you what's most important to us

Listen one thing that never changes ,

In God we trust .
