America the beautiful...
supposed to be the home of the brave
and the land of the free -
where the truth's actually hidden
stored away so we can't see
all the hypocrisy
loss of privacy
so many without even a dollar to buy a happy -
meal for their kids.
So many people checkin' their shoulders
to the left and the right
never knowin' who's gonna come in the night
take them away -
never again to see the light of day -
but now America's one step closer freedom
and to the American way.
is just political imitation.
little flag pins and hours of smilin'
not gonna help all the people who are dyin'
in the streets
on their feet
can't be near the police
without fear of gettin' beat
just for the color of their skin -
for their perceived religion.
you're not always looked at strange,
and seen for what's on the out-side.
Some of us d0 care...
for what people are,
on the in-side.
Doesn't matter if you're white or black
or wear a hijab,
not all of us are who make
up this political mob,
that's poisoned our mentality -
sore-ly dis-torted our reality.
The time has come; there's change
in two-thousand and eight.
This is the new home of the brave.
It's a new land of the free.
It's time for the world to see,
that America can be beautiful again.
Brothers and sisters we have to
work hand in hand.
We have to make America
This is mine. I made it, and now I claim it. I have staked a flag in this piece of creative territory. You use it, please let me know. I'm not asking for money, but if you make money off of it, be damned aware that I'll be asking for a share. Like...15% would do. And not for the initial sales; I mean the bigger 15%, the one after yearly sales are factored and all. You're my cash cow now. Congratulations.
And yes, credit goes to whoever coined "America the Beautiful", "Home of the brave" and "land of the free".
