Your dad signed up in ‘43
To fight the fascists overseas
Now you don’t hear the irony
Coming from your tv screen

Oh say can’t you see?
It’s the same throughout history
You turn your face away so silently
Hiding the good I see in you,
From me.

There’s so much information
You don’t want to choose
You just change the conversation
And let your echoes be your truth.

Oh say can’t you see?
It’s the same throughout history
You turn your face away so silently
Hiding the good I see in you,
From me.

You’re not the type of person
To be cruel or unkind
You taught us this was wrong
So how can we be blind?

Oh say can’t you see?
It’s the same throughout history
This isn’t how it has to be
It’s not too late for you
And me.
