  • There’s a reckoning
    It’s been coming down the line
    For believing your own press
    Unbridled selfishness
    Demons of deceit and denial
    The undivided truth
    Is slipping through our hands
    It’s lying all in pieces on the floor

    But if you’re are old enough to remember
    The incandescent sky
    You’ll recognize the dimming of the light
    If we don’t get back to the beauty
    Of the elegant design
    We’re bound to die in the darkness
    Of a starless, soulless night
    American sunset...

    There’s a poisoning
    That happens slowly over time
    It just seeps into the water
    Lambs to the slaughter
    So you don’t even notice that you’re dying
    From inequality and greed, partisan divide
    Majesty is falling from our eyes

    If you’re are old enough to remember
    The incandescent sky
    You’ll recognize the dimming of the light
    If we don’t get back to the beauty
    Of our elegant design
    We’re bound to die in the darkness
    Of a starless, soulless night
    American sunset...

    If we don’t get back to the beauty
    Of the elegant design
    You’ll recognize the dimming of the light
    You’ll recognize the dimming of the light
    American sunset
    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh… Writer/s: Bruce Sudano
