Story Behind the Song

The US election

Lyrics

Shame

Lady Liberty hangs her head in shame
She didn't vote so she can't be blamed
Will the land she loves ever be the same
She can't believe what has just happened

Mt Rushmore's faces have all turned away
Can't face the reality of the world today
Not Red, not Blue, just a future so grey
They can't believe what has just happened

Chorus

Have faith in the people , in the people we trust
They'll do the right thing, so we said
But today all our hopes have been ground into dust
Replaced by anger and dread

Verse

The Constitution lies battered and worn
Its been tried and tested since the day it was born
It steels itself - forearmed is forewarned
It can't believe what has just happened

Chorus

Have faith in the people , in the people we trust
They'll do the right thing, so we said
But today all our hopes have been ground into dust
Replaced by anger and dread

Verse

The eagle sits high above the uproar
It licks its wounds borne from shore to shore
When will it again swoop and soar
After everything that's just happened

Can you please tell me what has just happened

I don't know what has just happened
