"Winter in America" as written by and Gil Scott Heron....
From the Indians who welcomed the pilgrims
To the buffalo who once ruled the plains
Like the vultures circling beneath the dark clouds
Looking for the rain
Looking for the rain

From the cities that stagger on the coastline
In a nation that just can't stand much more
Like the forest buried beneath the highway
Never had a chance to grow
Never had a chance to grow

CHORUS:
And now it's Winter
Winter in America
Winter in America
And all of the heroes
Have been killed or sent away
But the people know, the people know
It's Winter, Winter in America
Winter in America
And there's nobody fighting
'Cause nobody knows what to save

The Constitution
A noble piece of paper
With free society
Struggled but they died in vain
To the peace sign that melted in our dreams
Never had a chance to grow
Never had a chance to grow
