about

Written and recorded 2004 for a high school history project. My first "single", which received a modicum of attention on the erstwhile download.com Music section, shortly after it was launched as the successor to mp3.com.

lyrics

Welcome to America, land of the free
Get rich and buy anything you see
We won't hurt you, we won't oppress you
We'll just round you up for no reason at all
You just want a simple life in the land of free?
That's no problem, if your skin's the right color
But if we suspect you of what you'd never do
We are quite prepared to take all your rights away

Now get up and sell all you own
Report to us quick so we can put you away
Forget you're a citizen, forget you're human
Just 'cause how you look, you've been damned to this fate
If it wasn't enough, we have built ourselves a bomb
Just to show you up we'll drop it on your native land
Incinerate them all, just because we can
No one can stop us 'cause we're the land of the free

Just don't forget we've built ourselves a bomb
We think we know how to use it right
Round them all up just like animals
That's how it is in our land of the free
