lyrics

Our fathers promised us
A land free from tyranny
Centuries of disgust
Oh, how sly we humans be

In ’85 I was born
I heard “What luck! To live free!”
And learned an empty heart
Is so much better than one filled with greed

Without the lies I’ve been told, I may
Have never realized the truth at all
We’ve built a nation far from
The brick and mortar misery they call
A more perfect union

My mistakes, as a man, cannot amount, to what we collectively carry out
As an ant alone can bite, but without the colony there is no fight

Forgive and let it go, why can’t we
Forget and let it go, we never
Forgive and let it go, why can’t we
Forget and let it go

And your deeds, all alone, cannot resist, what they force on us bit by bit
As a wolf may kill the runt, but without the whole pack there’s no hunt, we never

Forgive and let it go, why can’t we
Forget and let it go, we never
Forgive and let it go, we always
Swear revenge and murder everyone

We can’t go back and change it
There’s no new land to run to now
No place to overtake

Did no one else bother
To read The Prince?
They practice it so perfectly
They love it like their Bible
Twisting God to fool all mankind
Twisting all mankind to fool themselves
All these pretty words designed
To make you resign
All your fucking power

And it will crumble
Oh, how it will fall
And every one of us
Will be responsible

Our fathers promised us
A land free from tyranny
Centuries of abuse
Oh, how broken humans be
