Waitin' for the Sun to Go Down
(Mishler)

Waitin' ... waitin' for the sun ...
Waitin' for the sun to go down ... down on freedom
Yea they're waitin' ... waitin' for the sun ...
Waitin' for the sun to go down ... down on justice

Let's talk about the American flag.
It's not just a red-white-and-blue ra-a-ag
Where there's chaos and fear,
It ought to mean that the good guys are here

But they're waitin' for the sun go down ... waitin' for the sun ...
Waitin' for the sun to go down ... on our sense of humanity
Yea they're waitin' ... waitin' for the sun ...
Waitin' for the sun to go down ... on the rule of law

Those terrorism boys are so bad:
We've betrayed every value we had.
Only the darkest intentions
Forsake Geneva's Conventions

But they're waitin' for the sun go down ... waitin' for the sun ...
Waitin' for the sun to go down ... down on equality
Yea they're waitin' ... waitin' for the sun to go down ...
Waitin' for the curtain to fall ... on our grand experiment

They say if we get hit one more time,
Our Bill of Rights won't be worth a di-i-ime
This freedom-lovin' fool disagrees.
That blessed piece o' paper's all that keeps us free

Still they're waitin' ... waitin' for the sun ...
Waitin' for the sun to go down ... down on compassion
Yea they're waitin' ... waitin' for the sun to go down ...
Waitin' for the hunger for war ... to devour God's abundance of peace

They think endless war makes people free,
But forced occupation isn't liberty
Enhanced interrogation ...
Disgraces our nation

And they're waitin' for the sun go down ... waitin' for the sun ...
Waitin' for the sun to go down ... down on privacy
Yea they're waitin' ... waitin' for the sun ...
Waitin' for the sun to go down ... on the pursuit of happiness

They violate judicial review
Ignore the FISA law protecting me and you-ou-ou
In secret, what really happened?
Whose thoughts were they tapping?

While waitin' for the sun go down ... waitin' for the sun ...
Waitin' for the sun to go down ... on accountability
Yea they're waitin' ... waitin' for the sun to go down ...
Waitin' for abusers of power ... to sabotage our principles

We've got freedom, but we're afraid to use it
If we don't, we're just gonna lose it
There is a solution:
Let's stick to the Constitution

Still they're waitin' Yea ... waitin' for the sun to go down ...
Waitin' for the curtain to fall ... on our grand experiment
Yea they're waitin' ... waitin' for the sun ...
Waitin' for the sun to go down ... down on America
