<p>Just to think that not so long ago
Was a man who risked his life
Who challenged all the lies offered as sacred truth
Just to cast a brighter light

The notion that we can live as one in perfect harmony
Requires a common sensibility
To teach an intellectual capacity that I believe

Is in the air, but everywhere
Is the ultimate act of treason
That so few could be aware that their nation's heart is bleeding

But oh, when the violence has begun
We decree the pen more mighty than the gun
While the fools believe, as one,
In this unrepentant age of unreason

Just to think that not so long ago
Was a man who received the seal
He peddled blatant lies and brought back tyranny
To divide his people with zeal

But we can live as one in perfect harmony
It requires a common sensibility
To teach an intellectual capacity that I believe

Is in the air, but everywhere
Is the ultimate act of treason
How so few could be aware that their nation's heart is bleeding

But oh, as a child who plays for fun,
With his eye up to the barrel of a gun
Watching fools believe, as one,
In this unrepentant age of unreason
Now that darkness has begun,
We decree the pen more mighty than the gun
Watch the fools believe, as one,
In this unrepentant age of unreason
