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 .
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 .
