Amerika! What can I say??

lyrics

STRIPES AND STARS

Don’t speak to me
In subliminal messages
All your wishes are hostages
Set free by your own demands

And don’t talk to me
Of the flags of our fathers
And don’t even bother
Waving a hand

There’s a boy in a red hat
And he tells me where it’s at
But he speaks to me in tongues
And his spit fills up my lungs
I had a dream of stripes and stars
But the stripes were metal bars
And the stars were big explosions
High above a burning ocean

The desert sands
Grow a little each day
Yeah they’re coming our way
It’s just a matter of time

This hour glass
We call an atmosphere
It’s just a thin veneer
And it’s wearing away

There’s a boy in a red hat
And he tells me where it’s at
But he speaks to me in tongues
And his spit fills up my lungs
I had a dream of stripes and stars
But the stripes were metal bars
And the stars were big explosions
High above a burning ocean
