America Lyrics

Artist: Tracy Chapman
Album: Where You Live

You were lost and got lucky, came upon the shore
Found you were conquering America
Spoke of peace, waged a war
While you were conquering America

There was land to take and people to kill
While you were conquering America
You served yourself and did God's will
While you were conquering America

The ghost of Columbus haunts this world
You're still conquering America
The meek won't survive, inherit the earth,
'Cause you're still conquering America
America
America
America

Found bodies to serve, submit and degrade,
While you were conquering America
Made of soldiers and junkers, prisoners and slaves
While you were conquering America
America
America
America

Your hands are at my throat, my back's against the wall
You're still conquering America
We're sick and tired, hungry and poor
'Cause you're still conquering America

You bomb the very ground that feeds your own babies
You're still conquering America
Your sons and your daughters, may never sing you praises
While you're conquering America
America
America
America

I see your eyes seek the distant shore
While you were conquering America
Take your rockets to the moon, try to find a new world
And you're still conquering America
America
America
America

The ghost of Columbus haunts this world
You're still conquering America
You're still conquering America
You're still conquering America
