Y'all Don't Wanna Step To Dis

This song is by Against Me! and appears on the album Crime as Forgiven by Against Me! (2001).

Four sins past sainthood
It's like I'm dying to forget
All the sleepless nights
Lying perfectly alone and still

I can drink till victory
I'll drink to the mighty
Drink until I die
Or at least until the sunrise

When honesty, as popular as a plague
Comes to remind me
The dead's winning the race with me
Going nowhere

Right down the street, a prostitute is selling the closest thing to love
That this country has to offer
And Alachua still sleeps tonight, and Alachua still sleeps tonight
And Alachua still sleeps tonight

So we fought for the republic
While the Catholic sun filled every eye
From the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean, victory
I'll drink to the mighty

We died for oil
We died for borders
Killed for democracy
Still believed every platform

Can you handle the death, accept what we create together?
I still know every politician's a fucking monster
Culture kills bureaucrats and all other undesirables
History said we died for freedom but today no justice was served

And America still sleeps tonight
And America still sleeps tonight
And America still sleeps tonight
And I hope it doesn't wake up tomorrow

So we boasted that we were champions
Each country singing its own praise like a rock thrown into the ocean
Humanity was rising to the top, two world wars later
Countless military interventions, we erect monuments to history

And give apologies to the dead
All that was fought for the living is quickly forgotten
We don't remember the dates, we don't remember the reasons, we have no idea what's going on
Building histories of western corporations

It doesn't even turn my stomach to see the pictures of atrocities anymore
Going numb in the new order of the new century
And Alachua still sleeps tonight, and America still sleeps tonight
And the world still sleeps tonight

And Alachua still sleeps tonight
And America still sleeps tonight
And the world still sleeps tonight
