lyrics

White hat / black hat
Been there / bombed that

I've got clean hands
and a dirty bible
I take my orders from the man
and sacrifice to his idles

Papa birthed a girl again
and sold her into slavery
What's to be inherited
from a land of blind bravery?

This is my country there are many like it but this one is mine
So this is America?

I got blood on my plate
trickling down from the ceiling
I was my hands say my prayers
but the paint keeps peeling

And I try to hide my face
and beg for a little grace

(Dirty plans... Unclean hands)

Women and children father and sons
everyone is equal at the barrel of a gun
White and black though more black than white
Coming for anyone who puts up a fight
And there's no end in sight
No end in sight
(But this is America)

This is my country there are many like it but this one is mine
So this is America?

And we're the good guys

right?

(Matthew Leary)
