America
Hijacked by white men who hate
Men who only demonstrate how to
Rock the toxic shock of
Political strychnine
In a genocide of the collective mind
We're doped on cellphone slot machines
All these screens won't liberate me
How long we gonna wait for it
When we had facebook playing us all
We took the bait for it
Will we mourn our country
As she dies
In hate and pain
Before our eyes
America
Home on the range
Where the hatred lives
America
Suicide on the run
Down the barrel of a gun
Columbine Parkland Sandy Hook Pulse Topps Uvalde
Hundreds of mass shootings in a year
There's no there there, the war's right here
How much of the earth
Can they kill for a buck
We work and we work
We let them do this to us
Controlling our bodies controlling our lives
For the need and the greed
Of the men who divide
Nazis on the march and in the senate they rage
Throwing brown babies in cages
And how have we turned our heads
Have we made our beds
As we trudge through the
Poisonous lies they spread
The jails & prisons are filled to the max
Souls chained to Jim Crow corporations
Fascist groove bang bang
Shooting up another school
Just like the other school
They're all bitches for the NRA
Kings of capitol the devils we pay
With Jesus as the bullet
And God as the gun
Will there be any justice
For the treasonous sons
How does it feel to be an American
Are we proud of what we've become
Watching weapons of war killing our children
The American dream
Now American red-hat greed
Giving guns to the wayward sons
Forcing our daughters to breed
We're playing Russian roulette
Each time we go out in these streets
It's a killing machine
How much money does a mother f***** need
America
Home on the range where the hatred lives
America
Suicide on the run
Down the barrel of a gun
Will we mourn our country
Or will we rise
To fight for our lives
To resist and defy
Home home on the range
Where the bullets fly
And the children die
America
Is there something here to save
Are we the land of the free
And the home of the brave
