UNITED WE STAND                                  

 

One nation

I owe allegiance to                                        

Or what we owe allegiance to

You owe us for slavery

You owe us for the Holocaust

You owe us for genocide

And for the reservations

And death

(So gamble us to salvation)

You owe us the west

You took our country

That we took from natives

You owe us for the crusades

And oil

You will pay

You owe us for colonization and tea

Taxes and sending us here

You are us

We are us

You owe us

You are rich
