'I am America' by Krista Branch

I am America


Words And Text By Krista Branch

.

[Verse One]
Pay no attention to the people in the street
Crying out for accountability
Make a joke of what we believe
Say we don’t matter ’cause you disagree
Pretend you’re kings, sit on your throne
Look down your nose at the peasants below
I’ve got some news, we’re taking names
We’re waiting now for the judgment day

.

[Chorus]
I am
America, one voice, united we stand
I am
America, one hope to heal our land

There is still work that must be done
I will not rest until we’ve won

I am America

.

[Verse Two]
You preach your tolerance, but lecture me
Is there no end to your own hypocrisy
Your god is power, you have no shame
Your only interest is political gain

You hide your eyes and refuse to listen
You play your games and abuse the system
You stuff your pockets while
Rome is burning
I’ve got a feeling that the tide is turning

.

[Chorus]
I am
America, one voice, united we stand
I am
America, one hope to heal our land

I will not give up on this fight
I will not fade into the light, I am
America

.

[Bridge]
You stuff your pockets while
Rome is burning
I’ve got a feeling that the tide is turning

.

[Chorus]
I am
America, one voice, united we stand
I am
America, one hope to heal our land

.

[Chorus]
I am
America, one voice, united we stand
I am
America, one hope to heal our land

I will not give up on this fight
I will not fade into the night, I a
m America
