Songwriters: Craig Carothers, Gene Nelson
Lyrics: We came to a new world, tired of the old one
Hungry for freedom, heavy with prayer
It was a beautiful treasure, ours for the taking
Never mind someone was already there
Invisible people

We were climbing in number in just a few generations
Frontiers to conquer, fortunes to make
So we hitched up our wagons, pushed ever onward
Never a thought for what lay in our way

Invisible people, we can’t see their tears
And they still cry out but no one can hear
Invisible people

No we come for the bargains, balloons for the children
Acres of parking, opening day
But under the asphalt, the pride of a nation
Is buried forever in the home of the brave

Invisible people, we can’t see their tears
They still cry out but no one can hear
Invisible people
