00:00 / 04:47

Johnny played the guitar
On his own property
So the police came and charged him
With a felony
A hundred million people cheered
And thought it was all right
That's the day
The day that America died.

Jenny ran the cafe
On Overland and Rose
Thirty years it's open
Overnight it closed
Family dreams are shattered
How will we survive after the day
The day that America died

Wear your mask everybody
Pretend you can hide the real you
They can track everybody
Forget the real life that we all knew

Rodney was a preacher man
Down in Florida
But God is competition So...
They came and locked him
Uh uh uh up now—  
Crying First Amendment
That just got denied
Right there on that
Day - ay - ay - ay -ay that
America Died 


Danny was a young man
A little scared to be alone
Then there came a lockdown
Trapped him in his home
We need more than a funeral
After Danny's suicide

[a moment of silence]

Cuz that was the day
The day that America died

Shed your mask everybody
You don't have to hide the real you
Take it back everybody
Take back the real life that we all knew

Show a little trust
Show a little pride
Show a little courage that was hiding
Somewhere deep inside
Show a little faith
Show a little fight
Freedom is reborn after the day...

Hey hey yeah

(Show a little trust, show a little pride)
Mmmm show a little pride yeah

(Show a little courage that was hiding)
hiding

(somewhere deep inside)

somewhere

(show a little faith)
gotta have faith in your heart

(show a little fight)
Oh and a little bit of fight

Freedom is reborn after the day
America died

(Show a little trust)
America
(show a little pride)
Whoa oh hey
(show a little courage that was hiding)
show a little, show a little...
Where is your courage?
(somewhere deep inside)
Show a little courage
Oh yeah
Got to have faith
Come on Come on
And a little bit of pride

Freedom is reborn after the day
Freedom is reborn after the day
Freedom is reborn after the day...

America died
