The Shield

Nearly everywhere in this big world we call home
There is injustice running rampant 
Whether it is in the Middle East, Asia, or Rome
Innocent people are unfortunate victims

President Barack Obama once said:
Justice is what people need more than anything
Justice is also what made our Founding Fathers
Break away from a tyrannical king

And ever since the Declaration of Independence was signed
This nation has served as a shield against injustice
And we have made all of our enemies bind,
Run and surrender at every turn

Whether it is terrorists, a foreign country,
Or just some force of nature
That dares to threaten our security
We are there to serve true justice

To those who dare awaken a sleeping giant
They can either run or yield
Because this great nation is
A shield against the cruel reality of injustice
