Lyrics

The house is unguarded, devil’s in the easy chair

Slipped in uninvited, like we were caught unaware

But we all saw it coming, and now we’re hiding behind

Our hunger for winning fed by the ties that blind

 

We’re in this together, a country divided in three

Between the haves and the have nots, and the ones who can’t see

That honor and glory come to those seeking to find

Respect for each other, more than the ties that blind

 

We all double-crossed the true vision we lost chasing ideologies

There’s no majesty in refusing to see the forest for the trees

 

We’re losing the moment and we haven’t even started yet

We can’t choose a leader without playing Russian roulette

The camps were divided when the Declaration was signed

But they sought higher purpose over the ties that blind

 

We all double-crossed the true vision we lost chasing ideologies

There’s no majesty in refusing to see the forest for the trees

 

If freedom’s light which we’ve defined

Should fade from our future, blame the ties that blind
