Yeah, sure, go on ahead,
Make us great again,
I’d like to see you try…
But as long as we’re killing,
Innocent and guilty,
You might have a little bit of trouble
Because even though we’re human
We keep producing
This madness that comes in and
Goes out
And never really leaves us
Because eventually we find
That the problem does not live in us
The problem lives in the fact that we are not willing to trust
That tomorrow might be better like little orphan Annie said
And sometimes we need to get out of our own heads
And follow our hearts
Because He already did his part
For us
So make us great, I dare you,
But I think you’ll find that if you try,
Forever the day we fell will you rue,
And never will we fly.

It's interesting that some (if many), want to go back to the "Good Old Days" believing that those, "Great" times will somehow make us "Great again". There hasn't been a "Great" period in the history of the world nor ever will be since every age is marred by famine, plague, murder, war, separation, loss, and every other evil thing that some people cover in gilded seals. They hope that everyone will forget the evil things that happened in the past and mistakenly call it "Great".What we need to do as a nation, better yet humanity as a whole is to have hope in the future, tomorrow, since what happened in the past is history; we can still change the future. Yes someone could bring back the past, the "good old day", but as a consequence, they will bring back the bad old days as well. Eagerly waiting for humanity to make a huge mistake again. Great work as always T_Hope! :D
