Nixon Comes to the Monuments

O, if only I could make them see
If only they would listen
But there's so many of them, together
And I am just one
And there is so much that separates us
They know nothing of football
And I've never been blown
Still there is this that joins us
None of us ever knew the country we loved
Here's the secret, here's what you still don't know
That no thought was ever given
The argument was just for show
Let loose the birds, set the valley on fire
Watch the smoke rise from the valley below
