G Bm A A

I could not believe the things I'd seen thus far
It opened up my eyes to see the world hard
Maybe the founding papers really didn't go too far
Decentralizing power to keep it from the dark
Maybe the founding principles have got a fatal flaw
We are what we consume, will that be the end of it all?

The people won the war
It's only right
It might be a fatal flaw
but it takes time. It takes time

Trust in good intentions is a trust that we can't make
Unless these institutions are more difficult to break
Unless our guiding principles are understood by all
Unless the truths of Jefferson were really on the ball

If all of us were angels, there'd be no need for the press
If the lights are off you can be sure there is a mess
You could not believe the things you'd seen thus far
It opened up your eyes to see the world being scarred

The people won the war
It's only right
It might be a fatal flaw
but it takes time. Yeah, it takes time

He could put his face on a dollar
And I really think he might
I stare up at the stars most every night
The moon will not believe the things I tell to it
Mars and Venus stoically remind me this is it
