Haven't We Learned

"Haven't We Learned' is essentially a song about American politics and the general condition of the USA . I have long considered the parallels between the United State and its excesses and the great Roman Empire. It is Rome's crumbling from within that I refer to in "Haven't we learned from those who've come before us".
I lie awake and wonder
What a single voice can do
In a war against injustice
A revolt long overdue.

In a nation that has sent men
For a walk upon the moon
How can there still be people
Without shelter, without food..

Haven't we learned
From those who've come before us
Haven't we learned
Must it come crashing down upon us
Haven't we learned
..Haven't we learned.

They send our soldiers packing
To those places far away
They say it's about freedom
About democracy

But if you think about it
You can read between the lines
It's all about them cashing in
On someone's sacrifice.

Haven't we learned
From those who've come before us
Haven't we learned
Must it come crashing down upon us
Haven't we learned ...Haven't we learned.


There's no room for conviction
With the feeders at the top
In all their lust for power
All our choices have been bought

And I know we don't consider
The "Great Experiment" has failed
Now death is dealt for dollars
And democracy's for sale.
