How does this great country
That has all this wealth
Make so many poor decisions
When it comes to people's health?

The few profit off the many
And reject 'em in their time of need
The horror stories are plenty
But the biggest one is the excessive greed

pr ch
I'm gonna tell the truth
Everywhere we see the proof

The system is sick, it's sick, sick oh it's sick
The system is sick, it's sick - whoa it's sick

So what do you do
When you're told
There's no more grace in growing old?
And where does one turn
when they learn
They've lost everything and all the money they earned?

Isn't this America?
Home of the free & brave
So where is your courage now?

Isn't this America
Land of the fabled dream
It's time to wake up & face reality

It's sick, it's sick - whoa the system is sick
The system is sick, it's's hard to tell when it will get well

Instr. bridge - 8 bars / change

to love is universal
care is universal too
this life has no rehearsal
so what shall we do?

let compassion be the guide
health care's a human right...

pr ch
now i'm gonna tell the truth
in our children's eyes we'll the proof

the system can change & grow strong
but we've gotta stand up now - we can't wait for long
The system can be healed and transformed
everybody in, nobody out - let compassion be the norm
