    American

    Inside my house we had forgotten now
    Inside my house we had forgotten how
    To live in the country with three white stones
    Surrounding a flag of branches and bones
    Of mirrors of contracts and signed armored clad
    Of the ways we play circus to hide what we had

    They won’t tell me what I am to be an American
    I’m here but my hearts at sea, oh they won’t speak for me

    And someone spoke too soon they got caught again
    And the kids they lost their breath in the revolution
    They settled for houses and for small kids
    To tell them the stories of when they were young
    The warriors they thought they’d become
    Now hide in the surface like the roots from the sun

    They won’t tell me what I am to be an American
    I’m here but my hearts at sea, oh they won’t speak for me

    I will stay up late and dig my own trench
    I’ll ask all the questions they never present
    And it’s sick and its vain and it’s hard to explain
    To question the role or the play of the game
    Not for your founding father or for the new born threat
    Not for your radical breach that you tend to forget
    Not for your good mother or the weight of her debt
    Not for your children at sea, but your own way to

    Tell what you are to be an American
    I can’t live by your words and remain the person which I came
    They wont tell me what I am to be an American
    I’m here but I’m loosing my cool, no I won’t wait for you.
