America (Oh Say Can You See)
Lyrics
Turn out the light, what's wrong is right
Welcome to the new dark ages.

In the home of the brave and the land of the free
They're trying to sell off our democracy
They don't believe in you or me, or "We the people"
They want to privatize the constitution
Gerrymander the Bill of Rights and legalize pollution
They declared hunting season.... on the American Eagle. 
America, Oh say can you see!  

In the home of the brave and the land of the free
They don't believe in equality
They don't care about the poor, or the sick or the needy!
They want to dummy down the whole damn nation
Deny science and defund education
Their trickle-down minds serve only the greedy
America, oh say can you see! 
America, oh say can you see!

So turn out the light, What's wrong is right
Welcome to the new dark ages.

In the home of the brave and the land of the free
Our forefathers fought for our liberty
For our right to stand up or sit down or to take a knee
To protest injustice and inequality
So I stand up now for a more perfect union
I stand for tolerance and brotherhood and a sense of communion
And I stand against hypocrites who lie to our faces
And try to drag us back down to the new dark ages. 
America oh say can you see! 
America, oh say can you see!

So turn on your light, what's wrong is NOT right
Shine a light on the new dark ages!
This land is your land, this land is my land
From sea to shining sea. 
And crown thy good with brotherhood, 
America, oh say you see...............
