Dedicated to JFK, RFK, Martin Luther King and Malcolm X...but it's also dedicated to E. Howard Hunt, George Bush Sr., Richard Nixon, the CIA, the FBI, the DEA, the NSA and the American Military complex.

lyrics

I know this chick named America,
she's married to a man who's been scaring her,
he protects her, but he lies and steals,
and cheats...while swearing upon her seal.

She's heard rumors of clandestine, backroom deals,
and getting off on enemies losses in "the field,"
but lately, someone's making 'em squeal, and
now she's nervous, about how it's making him feel.

She's seen things, but it's more than that,
she's been clothed and adored and worn the hats,
she's been housed and fed and adorned in tats,
and enjoyed being an accessory, before his acts.

So now, she's as guilty as him, and
if she doesn't fix it, so will be her kin,
and that WILL be a sin, when her
man makes his move, will she too or blow in the wind?

Remain status quo, accept the life,
become an accomplice, and let it slide.
Is it worth her time, to keep her turf and pride?
Were it up to him, would she live, or die?

You can fool people some of the time, but you
can't fool yourself forever, so stop lying.
Can she, find enough backbone to climb,
out of this pit of despair, where the water's fine?

Can it be time for some amnesty,
and come clean, and trust her man to be
the man he claimed to be before transparency, and
stop withholding rights of fellow humanity?

She'll forgive him if he can, but if he can't,
the Apocalypse of Truth will divorce their hand,
only to reveal a greater land...
rock will stand where their secrets wash away with the sand...
