Proud American


I just want to be a Proud American
I just want to stand Tall again 


When I was young taught the American Dream 

Many years later I don’t know what it means
Democracy it used to be a good thing
It seems those elected are maniacally insane 

My dad graduated from the seventh grade

Started sweeping floors became a corporate slave 

Raised a family of 17 children
Retired early on a great pension 


I just want to be a Proud American I just want to stand Tall again
I just want to be a Proud American I just want to be Proud again 


The oceans are ruined behind a corporate veil 

Were all radiated were surely going to hell 

What other species destroy’s it’s own home 

The one called humans were dumb as a stone 

A good friend of mine was a tunnel rat in Nam 

Drafted against his will, sent to kill, then sent home 

It took 40 years so his eyes wouldn’t see
The children that he killed in the name of Liberty 


Oh give us back our American Dream  

Home of the Brave land of the Free
Wave the flag, wave it high
If I can’t be free, I’m prepared to die

 

I’m too old to live through World War III 

The whole silly mess concerns you and me 

What the hell is life in this video game
Pull your head out and join in the change 

It’s time to stop being individual
Hung up on ourselves its a recipe for hell
300 million we the people strong
We all come together and sing this patriot song 

   

I just want to be a Proud American I just want to stand Tall again
I just want to be a Proud American I just want to be Proud again 


Me and you, you and me, me and you and us

Join me at the wheel of the peace train bus
A mountain of shit, we all have to climb
It’s time for people to draw the line 

Don’t get me wrong, I still love my country

I live in fear of those that represent me
I hope its not too late to turn it all around
If it’s not done soon, 

The US crumbles down 

The US crumbles down 

The US crumbles down 


Oh give us back our American Dream 

Home of the Brave land of the Free
Wave the flag, wave it high
If I can’t be free, I’m prepared to die

 

I just want to be a Proud American I just want to stand Tall again
I just want to be a Proud American I just want to be Proud again 


If I can’t be free, I’m prepared to die 


Breaking The Chain

If you weren’t white, my dad hated you

He used every racial slur he could think for you

I loved my father, despite my disgust

I’m sure you can see, it sure screwed me up


To this I proclaim, I’m breaking the chain     

We no longer hate, were a family of love


If you weren’t tough my dad hated you   

He beat me so hard, it turned my heart black and blue

He called it tough love, he said he did it for god and me

It shaped who I am, It made a man out of me

 

Imagine my disgust of where I came from    

This evil man he called me his son

To this I proclaim, I’m breaking the chain

We no longer hate, were a family of love

We no longer hate, were a family of love


I was raised on the influence of violence and god    

It led to a life of guilt booze and broads

We all know’s there’s god, I found religion’s false


The time for redemption

Say no to temptation

The road to Salvation


Lies in your heart  x  2


To this I proclaim, I’m breaking the chain    

We no longer hate, were a family of love


If you weren’t rich, my dad hated you     

He looked down from his white hatred, hiding from the truth 

He cared about white bigots, he wanted to be like them

It was so important, he didn’t care what his own kids thought of him


I don’t see a reason, to hate your fellow man   

Especially for the reason of the color of his skin

Despite what he might think, despite what he has shown

Were al created equal, dad, the lie has been told


To this I proclaim, I’m breaking the chain    

We no longer hate, were a family of love  x  4

Proud American

Proud American - I Just Want To Be A Proud American

Breaking The Chain

To This I Proclaim - I'm Breaking The Chain.  We no longer hate - were a family of love.

Don't Fit In

I’ve lost everything I owned three times in my life      

They say three times is a charm I guess they might be right 

It’s taught me everything I needed to know 

About life love peace and the path I choose to go


There are many things to buy including false clarity       

You can purchase love, you can purchase fame, you can purchase security

All these things that are better in life are not purchased with the dollar bill

I finally have come to peace that I don’t fit in


I always wonder if it’s me         

Let me sit here let me be

I’ve released all my enemies

I believe it’s time to say la vie


Oh I

Oh I

I Do’t fit in


I don’t how could they         

She don’t It’s hard to say

He don’t are you sure

They don’t why would they want to fit

Why would they want to fit in


Don’t feel afraid if you feel you don’t fit        

Even the ones who appear ok are better than hiding this

If you strip the money, if you strip the fame, if you drop the acting act 

You’ll find were all insecure in ways shaped from our pasts


I always wonder if it’s me         

Let me sit here let me be

I’ve released all my enemies

I believe it’s time to say la vie


Oh I

Oh I

I Do’t fit in


Oh I

Oh I

I Do’t fit in  x 4

Hey Pretty Girl

500 miles already gone        

Trying to get back to where I call home in your arms babe

Home is in our hearts         


Hey Pretty Girl with your eyes so wide      

Guide me through the Kansas countryside on my way back home

Home is in your arms        

Home is in your heart         


Together were peace         

Together were love

Were the couple that others want to be like us

Were a smile

Were a piece of fine art

It’s amazing babe 

To share our hearts

Home is in our hearts        


You always told me to follow my road      

Cause I always have a place to call home in your arms babe

Home is in our hearts         

I’ve taken chances I wouldn’t of have     

If I didn’t have a place to call home in your arms babe

Home is in your arms         

Home is in your heart


Now Sheila my dear, we now have a home     

No longer from place to place we will roam

We have a home

Home is in our hearts        

Don't Fit In

Don't Be Alarmed If You Feel Like You Don't Fit.  Even The Ones Who Appear Ok Are Better At Hiding This

Hey Pretty Girl

Home Is In Our Hearts
