Awakening Americans

Alanis Morissette

exibições 6.018

We watch movies of murder and we censor the breast
Give thanks for the murders of Chris Columbus
We kill our own and we vote for the man
"The lesser of evils", and us starring in the role of victim

I wonder how we change, if we can, in this land
I wonder how many mountains we'd move if we'd band together
Us, priveleged Americans

We pass our revisions onto the next generation
We kneel to the Gods of corporation
We eat when we're full and we hord all the rest
With our hands on remotes, we say: "yes, we're the best!"

I wonder what we'd change in this land, 'cause we can
Even with western centricity this rampant
Us, ugly Americans

Tied are not my hands
But see strangers and lineaments
As part of me; as you
For me, this awakening Canadian

We teach our offspring for themselves, every man
We shrug our shoulders and create yet another "ism"
We dissuade our young from using their imagination
We avert our eyes from this, our very own manifestation

I wonder what we'll change in this land, 'cause we can
I wonder how many mouths we'd fill if we'd band together
Us, awakening Americans
