Iíve Forgotten

Iíve forgotten where we wereÖ
Is this the beginning or the end?
Do we attack, do we defend?
Do we kickoff, do we receive?
Do we know who to believe?
Iíve forgotten where we were.
Do you remember where we were?

Iíve forgotten who we areÖ
Are we the good guys or the bad?
Are we the happy or the sad?
Do we stand up, do we sit still?
In the gathering storm I feel a chill.
íCause Iíve forgotten who we are.
Do you remember who we are?

Such a dangerous innocence,
Giving up on common sense.
Trusting everything they say
Is living life the hard way.

Iíve forgotten what we knowÖ
How much money can a rich man use?
How much more can a poor man lose?
Before the page begins to turn?
Before the contract starts to burn?
Iíve forgotten what we know.
Do you remember what we know?

Such a dangerous innocence,
Giving up on common sense.
Believing everything weíre told,
While our world is bought and sold.

Do you remember what we do?
We ask a question, yes, and then
We ask the question once again.
And the questions never end
When you are a citizen.
Learn the truth and hold them to
The promise made to me and you.
Learn the truth and hold them to
The promise madeÖ the promise madeÖ
The promise made to me and you.


This song appears on Tom Chapin's The Turning Of The Tide CD.
