The Way You Used To Be

by TheStoryMan

I should have a 100,000 followers
but alas I'm shadowbanned
the hatred for conservatives
shows all throughout the land

Oh America you're beautiful
or at least you used to be
when you weren't tried and crucified
for praying on your knees

All the media has been bought out
for no simple fact or reason
of politicians siding with our enemies
which is an act of treason

They turn the people against each other
to divert their crimes and lies
then scream for open borders
so that their army grows in size

Inner cities look like war zones
as the corruption runs quite deep
the collapse of an entire nation
with more homeless in our streets

The greed of money and casinos
it's all figured cash it in
trafficking sex and selling drugs
a government sworn in sin

So declare war on all us Christians
who can see with open eyes
of a world that we're not welcome
of a world that we'll despise

I just pray to God so high above
as I see satan spew his hate
I close my eyes and pray so hard
how much more can you take!

Oh America you're beautiful
where the eagle flies so free
when God was great and all was good
the way you used to be!

Oh America you're beautiful
as my flag it flies for me
saluting those who died for you
the way you used to be

Oh America I won't forget you
when you were united sea to sea
for it was just in God we trust
and the way we used to be!

Yes, the way you used to be my friend
of a time not long ago
I now pray for you America
and the world I used to know.
