Close your eyes and imagine
The soldier at Valley Forge
The suffering that he endured was real
Starvation, total war
Yet in his eyes, the iron will to win
And for the cause he won't relent

Chorus:
Would he look upon us now in anger and disgust?
His providence, our birthright and our creed
Will we let ignorance and laziness bring our demise?
Complacency, we're blinded by our greed

Standing barefoot, frozen bloody hands
His musket clutched, an iron grip
For the cause he has but one regret
He's only got one life to get

Chorus

It's time for us to open up our eyes
And cherish the lives we all can have
And to the ones who kept our freedom free
Words can't express all that you've done

Chorus
