This Starless Night

This Starless Night*

As we suffer through this starless night
Dear LORD see our plight

We are living in a country where wrong is right
and immorality is now a blight

With horrors untold
a dark night for our soul

Where the truth is a lie
and sadly too few question why

We are in a Titan like battle with sanity
and to hold on to what is left of our humanity

Prayer and Faith is all we have left
as we endure this ultimate theft
