Description

Now I hold just one thing true
I believe in me and you
I dream of humanity
Singing silent harmony

Lyrics

I once believed in the USA
With liberty and justice for all
Or at least for most
And that's pretty close
But the number is starting to fall

I once believed a president
Who promised to bring change
He spoke rather well
But from what I can tell
He loves Wall Street more than Main

I once believed a preacher
He told me to tithe ten percent
So I gave him eleven
For my ticket to heaven
Now I just can't forget to repent

Now I hold just one thing true
I believe in me and you
I dream of humanity
Singing silent harmony

I once believed in mermaids
Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny
Then I got wise to all of them lies
Except for the Tooth Fairy's money

I once believed the chimpanzees
On the AM radio waves
I listened too long
And I got it all wrong
It ain't truth but ratings they crave

I once believed my cable news
Was totally balanced and fair
They sounded so certain
But behind the curtain
Lies the wizard of doctrinaires

Now I hold just one thing true
I believe in me and you
I dream of humanity
Singing silent harmony

I once believed God made a mistake
In creating all the gay
Then I friended some queers
And now hold them dear
And welcome them to the buffet

I once believed a patriot
He was one of the chosen few
Who fly the same flag
And proudly brag
That we are better than you

I once believed a general
Crossing a crumbling bridge
The gas main was leaking
As he was speaking
Of a new enemy coming over the ridge

Now I hold just one thing true
I believe in me and you
I dream of humanity
Singing silent harmony
I dream of you and me
Singing silent harmony
I dream of you and me
Singing silent harmony
