    Will we ever see the end of these conflicts???
    Can we ever stop the fighting?
    intro verse is America the beautiful set to my music
    the rest is up to your imagination...this is not a protest song...
    not a prediction...not a desire
    This is meant to make you think...what the hell is going on?

    O beautiful for spacious skies,…For amber waves of grain…
    For purple mountain majesties …Above the fruited plain!
    America! America! …God shed his grace on thee…
    And crown thy good with brotherhood …From sea to shining sea!

    When the tanks come our cities…And they take our guns away…
    Say goodbye to freedom…And those amber waves won’t wave…
    When they make their way down Main Street…It won’t be music that they play
    When the tanks come to…A city nearest you

    And the days will turn to night …As the sky goes black and blue
    And the ground will shake like thunder…From those missiles aimed at you
    Hide your babies…hide your bible…Cause you’ll swear that it’s the truth…
    When the tanks come to…A city nearest you

    O beautiful for spacious skies,…For amber waves of grain…
    For purple mountain majesties …Above the fruited plain!
    America! America! …God shed his grace on thee…
    And crown thy good with brotherhood …From sea to shining sea!
