The American War

This song is by Simone White and appears on the album I Am The Man (2007).

Do you remember the American War
It wasn't that long ago, it was fought on every shore
Are you trying to tell me that you didn't know
I saw you reading the paper at the corner store
(Yes I know, that's a joke)

Did you ever think you lived inside the belly of the beast
Are you giving it something nice to eat
Or are you waiting for your very own special treat
We like to live on easy street

Do you remember the people we bombed
All the homes that were there that are now gone
Well whoever told you that life is fair
People have to die - over there

Did you ever think this was the greatest country in the world
With freedom and democracy and SUV's called "Liberty" for every boy and girl
The oyster chokes on its own pearl
"We know you can't help where you're born
It's not that you're foreign
It's what you stand for
We know it's hard to start reform
The revolution's born
But no one claims it" (winning ticket)

Do you remember the American War
We thought it was fun, but it was a bore
Do you remember the American War
We forgot what we were fighting for
Do you remember the American War
We forgot what we were fighting for...
