After ISIS beheaded our second citizen, this song flowed out. I hope our government will wake up to this awful evil and eradicate it from the face of the earth.

What Has Happened to the Land of the Free?
Words and Music by David E Ball

There once was a time
When none were inclined
To call the Americans weak.
The truth though, is this -
Americans miss
A leader who’ll lead…
And not from behind

So what has happened in the land of the free
And what has happened in the home of the brave
The unfortunate truth
We elected a ruse.
And sadly the whole world has paid

Now terrorists strike
Behead left and right
And no strategy can be found
This passivity
From a nation so free
Is demeaning at best…
Can no leaders be found?

So what has happened in the land of the free
And what has happened in the home of the brave
The unfortunate truth
We elected a ruse.
And sadly the whole world has paid

America needs to lead once again
Return to a common creed once again
Embrace what is right
Revive our true light
And carry the torch of the free
In the land that God gave liberty

So what has happened in the land of the free
And what has happened in the home of the brave
The unfortunate truth
We elected a ruse.
And sadly the whole world has paid
They could not trust us…and so walked away!

America needs to lead once again
Return to a common creed once again
Embrace what is right
Revive our true light
And carry the torch of the free
In the land that God gave liberty

"There once was a time
When none were inclined
To call America weak…"
