Prayer for America

This song is by Catman Cohen and appears on the album How I Want to Die: the Catman Chronicles 1 (2005).

Original video
America...

After 9/11, the country seemed reborn
Ready to shift from the shallow to the profound
What ever happened to the America that could have been?
What ever happened to the America we deserve?

Step into my church
And pray
For a nation growing dumber
Every day

What ever happened to the heroes
That should have been?
(I want to know)
Whatever happened to the stars
That should have shone?
(I want to know)
After the towers came a-tumbling down.

Don't care what you bought at the store
Got no interest in who you score
Give me stories of men and women
Who make the wheels turn
Do things I need to learn

Could care less about your marble floors
Show the Rolls to your greedy whores
GIve me hearts of men and women
Who save peoples' lives
Do things we need to prize

What ever happened to America?

People across America Unite
Times are urgent, we need to fight
The country's infrastructure is in a plight
Get the word to the people about whassup
Get the word that enough is enough

Roads are in ruin
Schools facing doom
Hospitals getting harder to find
Firestations closing down all the time
Honest policemen fading away
Caring nurses walking away
Shout the word all across the hood
Let's praise the people doing good

What ever happened to America?

Wasting too many hours discussing Pam Anderson's rack
Wasting too much time wondering if Michael's still black
TV's filled with junk and stupidities
Our seed's learning wrong priorities

We need more nurses and more burn wards
Fewer actors collecting dumb awards
Basketball players earning more than enough pay
Our fighting soldiers deserve one big raise
Let's put more money back into the roads
Less money going into BS reality shows

Teachers and nurses, firemen and police
Ambulance drivers, keepers of the peace

Shout the word all across the hood
Let's praise the people doing good

What ever happened to the stars
That should have shone
After the towers came a-tumbling down?

You don't know
As you watch the Media talk
You're strangled beneath
Their glamorous fog

I take this time
To remind you
Of the rampant course
A Man unleashed upon the world
With vindictive force

You took the time to estrange
The body and brain
Illuminati reigns
While some hottie's bling blocks
The Tellie's current affairs

Gotta change
Applaud arrange
With vision upon visions
While visions incisions
Gone missing for days

As this daze stays
Our school system strays
Heroes paid minimum wage
As stars achieve critical claim
For individual aims
This country's spirit takes
A visible wane

What ever happened to America?
