lyrics

I used to think I was a marxist
now i go to less marches
It's not that I don't want to start shit
But I don't want to start shit
Unless it's where my heart sits
i don't keep a knife under my seat
to join the revolution and spill blood in the street
rather have a discussion over a bottle of bud or a puff on a blunt and then get something to eat
I used to ask strangers if they believed in a God
to see if we were peas in a pod
and if they didn't agree with me then i'd argue and try to be smarter thinking I'd hear people applaud
But
I'm getting older
And I'm getting dummer
Or least I know less than I did when I was younger
I used to profess, now I'm more pro-wonder
I used to fear death, now I'm set to go under
No, fuck it, I still fear
This life is too top tear
and it's like we just got here
we're more than an oozie on a navy plane
or lazy susan cruising on the gravy train
we're the tingle up your neck
when you see the sunset filter through the dust as it settles on the wavy grain
yes, the wavy grain on the stolen land
theft is as American as a Cola can
yeah, it was sold to sam
tell it to the mother of a little girl
on the trail of tears as she holds her hand
dammit, this was built on something ugly
But wIth all my heart, man I believe in this country
The beauty of our constitution
have you read it lately? I swear It's really pretty lovely
Really splendid
It's like our forefathers penned it
inspired, some early eminem shit
It's like they meant it
it's like they dreampt that all the fences that divide us would eventually be mended
or rather torn down
so I don't think it's un-American at all for us to ask for even more now
Let's talk it over over more rounds
What do you say?
