you're 3000 miles away
and its only 3am

fulfills solemn oath
who watches out for him?

Death of Freedom

(Nonet)



The heart of the eagle fills with grief
as she flies over our nation
and sees the death of freedom.
Her tears fall over all
America, land
of tyranny,
no longer

The iron heart will never, never surrender
The tip of the people's arrow for democracy
Flower in heart will blossom over dictators!
