lyrics

How does it feel to walk down the street,
Not a penny to your name and nothing to eat?
You are a problem we don’t want to see
In the land of the brave and the home of the free.
Do you really think you’re better off this way?
Living in denial inside the USA

You don’t wanna look in my America.
Things ain’t always free in my America.
Be all you can be in my America.
It ain’t all that it seems in my America.

What is it like now to be alive
In a world where all of your hate can thrive?
How does it feel to hate your fellow man
Clinging to beliefs I don’t understand?
Call it coincidence or call it fate
Living next door to people we hate.
Color me grey, leave me the fuck alone;
There’s plenty of room in my home.

Which side of the fence d’ya go on
When you know both sides are fucking wrong,
In a world where you don’t belong?
