lyrics

They hold us down with the left

and sell us guns with the right

and say that they don’t know where they come from

as they watch us die tonight

It’s getting harder to be neutral

it’s getting easy to pull the trigger

and when a gun is in my hand- and fear in my heart

I’ll become just like them, I figure


I didn’t think it would end this way

the blood, the prize on my hands

to die in the arms of the enemy

to die in the arms of the enemy


Waterworks at the Bellagio

as earth children suck life from a straw

live with excess and fellatio

they claw for their lives till they are raw

Declare war upon the radio

static attack is drowning you

and they mask the truth with the lies you know

this nation is slowly killing you

I didn’t think it would end this way

the blood, the prize on my hands

to die in the arms of the enemy

to die in the arms of the enemy


I sit quietly, I know

the man with the gun has authority

I sit humbly, I am

the ill forgotten minority

I stand politely, I know

that I challenge a majority

I speak violently, I am

A path to our equality


I didn’t think it would end this way

the blood, the prize on my hands

to die in the arms of the enemy

to die in the arms of the enemy
