​Proud Honeybee

This song is by Ari Herstand and appears on the album Baby Eyes (2005).

So here we stand, we are infants so small
Dreaming that one day we'll be on top of it all
Above the mountains, above the trees
But here I sit wishing down on my knees
I've seen the creatures of this so called promise land
I don't believe that what we brag is all that grand
Yes wave them flags like a proud honeybee
Blindly working for the queen of an invisible feat

So how do we recuperate
Just now we emancipate
Our right to be free
With one tiny fee
We trash away the innocent face of all the colors who stand in our way

America, home of the free and brave
Imperceptible to what her French statue raves
A prison cell holds on to our foreign hate
A beehive hell is fine for our conscience's sake

Because a honeybee gives treats to the free, but stings them dead if you frighten its destiny

America, home of the free and brave
Imperceptible to what her French statue raves
It's good enough when we lock up the fear
It's our master plan for patriot love right here

I am so fed up with the whole patriot scheme that's killing the dream
Of integration with everyone
How can we preach love when we interfere with the buzz:
"With liberty and justice for all"

America, home of the free and brave
Imperceptible to what her French statue raves
It's good enough when we lock up the fear
It's our master plan for patriot love right here

And this honeybee bringing treats to me, stinging them dead - I feel so free!
Mama can't you see it's time for me to teach this honeybee to see

The hive is erasing the words of our fathers' dreams
