Principle was the stand
When the gathering storm darkens
Whether to unite or secession
Lincoln with great determination
To bridge the gap
But patriotism swept like wildfire
Stars and stripes or rebel banner
On sea or land fighting made history
Their country suffered enormously
Ending came with a high cost
Unknown lines belong to the ages
Yet enduring lessons and profound inspirations
Come out on both sides
Only to bridge the gap
Brethren with brethren stood strong
To unite side by side
To bridge the gap
America! America!
