Oh America! (Extended Version) Lyrics

Oh, America, land of the free
Your flag is flyin' but it looks dirty to me
Oh, America, home of the brave
Anywhere you go, you're leavin' too many graves
The chest is so big but the brain is too small
The whole world's cryin' out, "Just stop the wars"
Don't care about the climate, don't care about the poor
You don't seem to care about too much at all
Oh, America, land of the free
Your flag is flyin' but it looks dirty to me
Oh, America, home of the brave
Anywhere you go, you're leavin' too many graves
You say you're with God but you wield Satan's sword
With kangaroo courts you just make up your laws
No human rights, oh, yes, we know the score
The bogey man is close, he may live next door
Oh, America, land of the free
Your flag is flyin' but it looks dirty to me
Oh, America, home of the brave
Anywhere you go, you're leavin' too many graves
When the floods came down, it showed all your old traits
Condemned your own people on the basis of race
Why leave vulnerable people in a vulnerable place?
It's a crying shame, it's a freaking disgrace
Oh, America, land of the free
Your flag is flyin' but it looks dirty to me
Oh, America, home of the brave
Anywhere you go, you're leavin' too many graves
I say the government man, them seem to get it wrong
Them seem to make a whole heap of bad decision
Time fe good Americans to stand up strong
Like friends over there we know for so long
Stand up firm, me say, stand up strong
Time fe mek a new day, we no love Babylon
Me say, stand up firm, me say, stand up strong
Time fe mek a new day, we no love Babylon
They say the military help you be a better man
But still they don't really care about the veteran
And, yeah, I did a couple years in the navy
Floating in the ocean, eating rice and the gravy
I would've never went if I could have went to college
But they were like, no money, no knowledge
We give a lot of bread to these lame institutions
But most of them teachin' us lies and not solutions
See how they rearrange the black man's contribution
And now they got the nerve to go and change the constitution
The birds can't fly, the sky is full of pollution
Earths temperature rising like the crime rate in Houston
Police are corrupt, nobody is watching the borders
We never hear the truth about the war from reporters
In the ghetto, we pray a lot as life gets shorter
Man, my heart is in the hood, is this the new world order?
Stand up firm, me say, stand up strong
Time fe mek a new day, we no love Babylon
Me say, stand up firm, me say, stand up strong
Time fe mek a new day, we no love Babylon
America, certified home of the brave
We got freedom of speech but just watch what you say
In America, certified land of the free
And you can't believe everything you see on TV
Be hoping for a change in time, you wanna vote, stand in line
Different races, many faces, unifying every time
See Clinton or Obama, man, could help relieve the drama
We're grindin' and findin' answers while they're searching for Osama
See soldiers dyin' and mothers cryin', this war will never cease
Media lyin', America, they never wanted peace
Bush is a beast, he snatchin' oil from the Middle East
Let the rich get a piece, we barely make it in the streets
Overworked, underpaid, waitin' on government aid
Fast food, bad grades, rush me to an early grave
We 'bout solutions like equal funding for these institutions
Knowledge never fails and college keepin' us out of jail
From the left to the right to the front to the back
Them never see we comin'
AD UB40, ah, see
This one is a journey
Through the minds with lines for life
This one take them further, ah
Ah, hon, me say America, America, can you stop for a sec
Just a sec, please, can you just look this way?
We no like how it's goin' down, please can you slow it down
Please can someone explain?
How the building, them was tall, then the building dem ah fall
And the people, dem ah dyin' for no reason
Just give me a reason
America
Stand up firm, me say, stand up strong
Time fe mek a new day, we no love Babylon
Me say, stand up firm, me say, stand up strong
Time fe mek a new day, we no love Babylon
Me say, stand up firm, me say, stand up strong
Time fe mek a new day, we no love Babylon
Me say, stand up firm, me say, stand up strong
Time fe mek a new day, we no love Babylon
