​The Heart Of America

This song is by FGFC820 and appears on the album Law & Ordnance (2008) and on the Compilation Endzeit Bunkertracks Act IV (2009).

The tragedy of our day is the climate of fear in which we live, and fear breeds repression.

When the weapons of mass destruction thing turned out to be not true, I expected the American people to rise up. Ha! They didn't.
And now, it's been discovered the executive branch has been conducting massive, illegal, domestic surveillance on its own citizens. You and me.
Torture, warrantless search and seizure, illegal wiretappings,
I object to government abusing its power to squash the constitutional freedoms of its citizenry.
And what I'm most sick and tired of is how every time somebody disagrees with how the government is running things, he or she is labeled unAmerican.

We take our orders from the evening news
Paper dolls with political views
Find religion on the radio
The more you listen, the more you know

Sell the lie in a new pop song
No one questions as they sing along
Keep the pigs happy in the shit
Pick a side and bend the truth to fit

It's far easier to fight for principles, than to live up to them.

The grass is green and the skies are blue
And they're saying grace in the heart of America
Your mind's wiped clean when they come for you
And they lie to your face when you live in America

We are the tools of the government
Tiny pawns, we are all for rent
Here to hail the dictator in chief
Freedom fighters and world police

Put the blame on the generals
When politicians act like criminals
Arm the troops, then tie their hands
Plausible denial to retain command.

It's far easier to fight for principles, than to live up to them.

The grass is green and the skies are blue
And they're saying grace in the heart of America
Your mind's wiped clean when they come for you
And they lie to your face when you live in America
