Taxation without true representation, used to pay
For police officers that gun down children at play
With a toy gun wishing to pretend to be a soldier
To fight for his nation and become cannon fodder
For the war on terrorism and achieve great victory
By getting oil, to fill our cars and make money
The country I grew up loving is an empty shell
With Christian governors going straight to hell
With left leaning senators “helping” the disenfranchised
By taking more money from the lobbyist to advertise
Their name on a tv to ensure more votes and support
While veterans in the streets have been cut short
America is an alcoholic, drug infested wasteland
Growing up here required a very firm hand
To make sure you wouldn’t get addicted
By whatever you grabbed. Dictated
By the heroin inside your pale veins
Taking wrong lanes in pain to make gains
Pledge allegiance to the flag of the U.S.A
As long as you're not a minority or gay
Because then either you disenfranchised
Or your used for the S.J.W to be vindicated
there’s no middle men in the white house
Only ideological men with flames to rouse
Beauty is only at the skin deep, disgusting level
Cause the flesh underneath requires a shovel
Buried 6 feet under and covered in eternal dirt
The great nation looks good in a short skirt
But when it speaks its mind, opening its jaw
It speaks in tongues and with no withdrawal
That doesn’t destroy my hope in any way
Can’t you hear the heartbeat of the day?
The glorious rising notes of redemption
Being played by the pure in the distance
YES! We can make America what it needs to be
The land made for the people like you and me
Shhhhh.. Hear the rising chants of the faithful
Rise through the air. No single note dull
Why can’t we be heroes?
Why can’t we be happy?
Why does nobody know,
How to turn the key,
And open the door
Into something more
Into something beautiful
The type of beauty that cannot move
Through the use of unstoppable love
And peace that can’t be removed
Make the flag pure as a dove
Make the red white and blue a symbol
The sign of freedom can be rekindled
Do not be angry and what the world has done to our home. Just accept the present and move in swift strides into the future with a breath of determination and the strength to do what is truly right. The country we’ve known has died. A truth undeniable to anybody. But that doesn’t mean we can’t create a nation we love. A nation that refuses to judge and refuses to acknowledge truth without every shred of evidence. Create a nation for every person that chooses to cross its border.
Create a nation that is indeed beautiful.
A nation worthy of the name,
Worthy of the phrase,
America The Beautiful.
