Madam Liberty
Lyrics
Madam Liberty

She crossed the Atlantic a century ago
To stand on our shores, a beacon of hope
Welcoming immigrants, paupers and poor
Humanity's testament, so true and pure
But what of her footing and what of her dreams?
The foundation she stands on is crumbling it seems
Her torch now burns low; it's so hard to watch
Will she turn her back on this melting pot?

(chorus)
Her head drops and there's tears in her eyes
And they drip down her face turning copper to lies
The courage she had to stand proud in the wind
It keeps getting tested again and again

Forefathers entrusted, justice prevail
Constitution delivered, we must not fail
Brazen and bold new experiment
We used to believe it was all heaven sent

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
Oh Madam Liberty please don't give up
We'll carry your torch, if that's not enough
We'll call on our courage and beat back the fear
You can stand on our backs as we wipe way your tears

(repeat chorus)
