"Where Have Our Songs Gone?"
Words and Music by Michael B. Hicks

They sang songs to help gain freedom
And now we act like we don't need them
They sang songs about injustice
But now we sing to please the public
Somebody tell me, "Where have our songs gone?"

They sang songs that brought us healing
Now our music has no feeling
They sang songs to create art
But now our music's lost its heart
Somebody tell me, "Where have our songs gone?"

Our influence remains strong
But somewhere we went wrong
Where have our songs gone?

They sang songs about the struggle
But now our music is in trouble
