They jump and they sing,
Rejoice in the streets.
The battle is over,
The war done.

But what about us?
Those who weep in the dark
As America rejoices?
Those whose loved ones,
Are never coming home?

They jump and they sing,
Rejoice in the halls.
The cures have been found,
Lives saved.

But what about us?
Those who cry in the corner
As America rejoices?
Those who the cures,
Are too late to save?

They jump and they sing,
Rejoice in their homes.
Babies are born,
Families grow.

But what about us?
Those who grieve in their hearts
As America rejoices?
Those who have watched,
As their dear ones died?

We cry and we weep,
We grieve in silence.
And look on,
As America rejoices.
