Altar Boys - Where's the New World



On a ship we came
Every mother, child and father
Thru the wind and rain
We almost died looking for the New World
The place our hearts were longing for
No one to push us down no more

On a midnight ride
We yelled in the streets "the British are coming"
But we still survived
We saw a nation born
In God we trust was the cry of our nation
For every future generation

But when I look around today
Things just aren't that way
Now I just stand and cry
Where's the New World?

There's a lady who stands
At the open gate, she shows the way
With a torch in her hand
For the tired and poor, the huddled masses
Welcome to the land of the free
Made for you -- made for me
But when I look around today
Things just aren't that way
Now I just stand and cry
Where's the New World?

When you go to school don't wear a cross
No pictures of Jesus on the Christmas card
Don't take your Bible to school
Don't let the children pray, it's against the rules

But when I look around today
Things just aren't that way
Now I just stand and cry
Where's the New World?
If that's the way it's gonna be
Don't tell us we're free
Someone please tell me please
Where's the New World?
