A Fire Burns

Written by: Jon Arno

It seems so distant to me now
and memories fade each day
What happened to our way of life?
I really just can’t say

Somehow a stupor settled in 
and apathy laid waste
A generation lost its soul
and values were replaced

My heroes disappeared one day
and rights turned into wrong
Confusion now so strong and clear
To whom do I belong?

Yet now inside a fire burns
I know we're still the best
I pledge allegiance to the flag
my hand upon my chest
