Marina Diamandis – New America

New America

[Verse 1]
Everything that made you great only made you bad
Made the people hate all the good they had
I know that you had big dreams
That you had big plans
But abuse won't make
Won't make a free land

[Pre-Chorus 1]
You got a white picket fence and your dad's got a gun
And when you see the police, there's no reason to run
You got a job, and a car, and a good dental plan
You got health insurance, pocket money
Damn

[Chorus]
America
America, America
You can't bury the truth
It's time to pay your dues
America
This is a new America
Stars are shining for you
Sparkling red and blue

[Verse 2]
Fucked with the food chain
Fucked with the farming too
And now our food don't taste
Like it's meant to do

[Pre-Chorus 2]
They've got blood on their hands
'Cause they stole all the land
And all the lies they're here to raise
Made them feel like a man
Who gave you jazz, hip hop, rock and roll, and the blues?
No matter what, the story's catching up on you

[Chorus]
America
America, America
You can't bury the truth
It's time to pay your dues
America
This is a new America
Stars are shining for you
Sparkling red and blue

[Bridge]
White teeth, dark smile
You've been in pain for a while
You can't hide your secrets we can see

[Chorus]
America
America, America
You can't bury the truth
It's time to pay your dues
Stars are shining for you
'Cause freedom's sparkling soon (Oh)
America
This is a new America
Stars are shining for you (Oh)
Sparkling red and blue (Oh)
