You have let America down

You Did

By Barry Tudor

You have let America down

You let them drag us into the ground

You turned your head and you closed your eyes

You closed your heart so heavy with sighs

You turned away from all that’s true

You turned away from what you knew

You took the lies so easy to swallow

You looked like a fool seeking something to follow

And those who saw as plain as the day

What was real and true and would not go away

Who told the world what science has easily proved

And when I told you, you could not be moved

The ability to question the things in this world

Are being curtailed, plans being unfurled

You hear the easy and comfortable things

Which do not disturb your imaginings

And the ones who are proven to be the cause

The very ones who write all our laws

That kill the freedoms we used to enjoy

Hurting the lives of every young girl and boy

Taking away their chance to be free

And live the promise given to you and to me

America was the home of the brave

Now seems to have its foot in a grave

And the other on a banana peel…

Are any of the things we are told real?

I still hold hope...

Some have made a plan for you…

By Barry Lane Tudor

I wish there was a pill
That I could give to you
To open up your eyes and mind
And see the honest truth

The honest truth that some
Have made a plan for you
Of what it is you learn
And what it is you do

I don’t really care
If you think I’m lame
Or if you even dare to say
That perhaps I am insane

I tell you now that things are bad
As fragile as bad glass
But it seems you’d rather have
Your head right up your ass

So go and carry on
As if everything is right
And don’t call me when you finally see
The bullet you’re about to bite
