What am I fighting for? Is there purpose, direction, a horizon? Can we see it as a nation? Can we see it as an individual? What am I fighting for?

AudioBlocks music and Mark's words and voice. . . .

When insights from days long ago are no longer real, the assessment of where one stands and what one will fight for need to be determined. This song is about that. . .
****************************************
What Am I Fighting For?
****************************************
Another list of names to compile,
Another innocuous bill indoctrinated in style,
Another wisp of fact, fiction, or prose I feel.
Another white page filled with words.
Another song contemplating birds
Another insight I had so long ago doesn’t now make it real.
What am I fighting for?
What am I fighting for?
Must be something I’m fighting for.
Another live news broadcast shadow descends,
Another talk show life that starts soon will end.
It’s a culpable, capable life that stretches out before me.
And I’m watching people strung along wires like beads.
Another gasp of emptiness inside of me,
That makes me feel like I’m 103.
Until the wind shifts and I feel the satin stain of the sun like seeds
What am I fighting for?
What am I fighting for?
What am I fighting for?
If not for you
I believe there’s a flag, red, white, and blue.
I believe that spirit lives inside every one of you
What are we fighting for?
What are we fighting for?
What are we fighting for?
If not freedom, the spirit we can’t ignore.
Let the light shine out on us
We’ll take the light you give to us
And we’ll know what we’re fighting for.
What are you fighting for?
What am I fighting for?
What?
