Dear Mr. President

A very proud SCE :D

Dear Mr. President

Dear Mr. President
Oh say cant you see
The truth is self evident
Even to one such as me
The cauldron you stir
Is full of tears, sir
And its based on your own recipe
The wolf at the door
Is inside our own house
And the dogs of war
Are raising their doubts
Is it a man or a beast
That let slip the leash
Will we ever figure this out

(ch)
Here in the land of the free
We can agree to disagree
But in these times of shame
Weve only ourselves to blame
Here in the home of the brave
Is an empty place at the table
In memory of all that they gave
Freedom is just not a label

Dear Mr. President
Oh say cant you see
Are you so hell-bent
Just how long will it be
Does the Red, White and Blue
Mean anything to you
You treat it so treasonously
Your cause has been lost
The price has been pain
Was it all worth the cost
Sift through the remains
Youve mastered deception
Through mass misdirection
What were you hoping to gain

(bridge)
Did you ever stop once to think
In all your years in that oval room
Theres blood in your pen not ink
And you been writing volumes

Dear Mr. President
Oh say cant you see
The truth is self evident
Even to one such as me..
