Good Morning America

by rickoLus



Plastic bones and Cadillac’s

Boot heels licked the magic trap

No one now can look away

A country built on broken backs

Freedom rings its heart attack

Running of the bulls in china stores

Crippled dynasty’s arrive

Power chains the turkeys pride

Now the Schools are all soup kitchens

The rockets leaving for the moon

With the Salvation Army’s lost platoon

The war on drugs is a chattel in disguise

Good morning America

Good morning America

Good morning America

The ghost of Hitler rides an orange ass

Duke of Babel sits on a throne of ash

We stare into mirrors all day long

The statues cry for the great divorce

The traitors on their tired horse

Kings will always pick fights for the poor

Lady liberty cracks her bell

Investors bet on prison cells

Paul Revere is dealing oxy

The orphans paint it in the streets

Nothing matters if you can’t see

That everybody here has a name

Thank God gave us all rock n roll

To help save our bitter poisoned souls

The angels sing those sanguine songs

Born in the juke joints

There faces were all brown and black

Still reeling from the whiplash

The secret to the song they sang was it’s love

Love is hope and pain and time

And Love is yours and love is mine

Nothing lives outside those arms

Effigy apologies burn

Forgive us all for what we’ve learned

I am just a bird born on hand me down wings

Good morning America

Good morning America

Good morning America

Take the torch and set us free

Drown this ancient misery

However you see fit

Sundown at the Grand Canyon

Breathe it deep and taste the sun

Change is always just around the bend

Let the light shine on

Let the light shine on

Let the light shine on
