"The punishment no longer fits the crime" I'll make an effort to be all that I can be. Do you know what we're fighting for? Each day when I wake up and I set my best foot forward I take a look around me and I wonder how things change so much in the few short years since I was a young boy. I know in an instant I could lose everything I'm working toward. Chorus: though I fear we'll lose the war to the new American way. I know I'll win my battles The morals of this nation's youth have long gone astray lead by tolerance, indifference, and this kinder gentler way that has corrupted and destroyed so many of our boys and girls oh Lord I start to wonder will it ever come around?
