Lyrics

America
©2019 Tony Cerniglia & Cubby Tracy

The rich get richer, and the poor get poorer, it's never enough cause we need more
Consume and trash, it's what we believe, the almighty dollar is why we bleed
Guns and violence on prime time TV, the way of the world, it's our reality
Sex and drugs and rock and roll doesn't carry much weight cause the story got old

It's the only way of living we know, we're never giving into fear

We're all too smart cause we're educated, highly trained and sophisticated
We have all the answers yet not a clue, guilty as charged is a point of view

It's the cost of independence we know, the price we pay in the land of the free

When the simple truth is a lesson learned, we could save the world but we're unconcerned
Going to take the fall, going to watch our backs, don't count on anyone to write that check.

Well I'm not sure we'll make it out of here, if we don't change the way of the world it’ll disappear

America, ask not what your country can do for you
America, ask what you can do for your country

Killing ourselves shot after shot, life doesn't matter, cause that’s all you got
Ticks on the back of an old cash cow, we the people don’t hold much power
He said, she said, it’s over the top, fake news is the truth, believe it or not
We need content intervention, freedom of speech gone in the wrong direction

We know the end is coming, we know. We're never giving into fear

Information got us overloaded, the safeties off, the guns are loaded
All we need is love we’re told, but the devils got a stronger hold

Well I'm not sure we'll make it out of here, if we don't change the way of the world it’ll disappear

America, united we stand
America, divided we fall
America, one nation, together
America, with liberty and justice for all

America, ask not what your country can do for you
America, ask what you can do for your country
America, one nation, together
America, with liberty and justice for all

One nation, together, one nation, together,
One nation, with liberty, and justice for all
