    As if I really didn't understand
    That I was just another part of their plan
    I went off looking for the promise
    Believing in the Motherland
    And from the comfort of a dreamer's bed
    And the safety of my own head
    I went on speaking of the future
    While other people fought and bled
    The kid I was when I first left home
    Was looking for his freedom and a life of his own
    But the freedom that he found wasn't quite as sweet
    When the truth was known
    I have prayed for America
    I was made for America
    It's in my blood and in my bones
    By the dawn's early light
    By all I know is right
    We're going to reap what we have sown

    As if freedom was a question of might
    As if loyalty was black and white
    You hear people say it all the time-
    "My country wrong or right"
    I want to know what that's got to do
    With what it takes to find out what's true
    With everyone from the President on down
    Trying to keep it from you

    The thing I wonder about the Dads and Moms
    Who send their sons to the Vietnams
    Will they really think their way of life
    Has been protected as the next war comes?
    I have prayed for America
    I was made for America
    Her shining dream plays in my mind
    By the rockets red glare
    A generation's blank stare
    We better wake her up this time

    The kid I was when I first left home
    Was looking for his freedom and a life of his own
    But the freedom that he found wasn't quite as sweet
    When the truth was known
    I have prayed for America
    I was made for America
    I can't let go till she comes around
    Until the land of the free
    Is awake and can see
