Mother, Father, closed my eyes.
Took it all in, just like you did.
Standing for a flag's a lie.
Trapping of the mind.
Blinded by the light of dreamland.
I can be anything, as long as I remain DEAD!
Illusion of free will and rights that we are fed.
Our jobs are now dead ends.
Hands are terrorist weapons.
Scraping the bottom, we are the enemies.
With our fingers in the dirt.
Trying to exhume, the American dream!
But all I find, are skeletons of our past sins.
Rich men bathed in blood.
With stretched skin over fake grins.
But all I find, are skeletons of our past sins.
Transparent eyes, of red with hunger for control.
With false gods at heart and corrupted plastic souls.
Singing "I am the way!"
The only way to bliss, is my democracy.
Mom and Dad, I closed my eyes, then I opened them, took it all in. Watched all those beatings that you took, and all you would give. I made a vow: "NEVER A VICTIM. NEVER THE TYRANT. NEVER AGAIN."
