lyrics

My postage stamp has a picture of the American flag
beneath it is written equality
so it must be true,
it must be true
equality for all in the red, white, and blue

you say I’m free
land of equality
but I’m just a second class citizen
this sea
I drown in
is red white and blue
I’m sorry,
I just cant love you

this land of red white and blue
you love it,
you just have to
this land of red white and blue
where the masses suppress the minorities at the polls
where we all have our roles
feed the wealthy and starve the poor
you love it, don’t you
this land of the red white and blue

I’m just a second class citizen
so I guess it doesn’t matter what I say
because the rich, white man makes the decisions
and the ones in the mansions and fancy cars aren’t listening
because I’m just a second class citizen

God bless this land of the red white and blue
God bless me and
God bless you
second class citizens
in this land of the red white and blue
