My friend Denise wrote this and I just had to share it with everyone...
The United States Perfection from the red woods to Staten Island
Invincible because we name the stakes In a world of cell phones, Motorola, Verizon No sun on the horizon, there is no communication Brotherly love is fake
So why pay this roaming charge fee? When it's I'll attack you & you'll attack me You'll kill four & I'll leave it to the grade school children To break down the doors
With handguns that out weighed their books Triggering consequences that cannot compensate For the lives that they have took
Wrap it all up in a Coca-Cola moment Hire, Sell, Fire, Trade We didn't buy it we stole it This freedom or the idea of it we've made
And the shock factor in our media is tiring Channel surfing for our next salvation It's just like Ani said, so inspiring "Take away our Playstations and we are a third world nation."
Rest assure kids we're better than we've been Redefining family Wrestling for our integrity Uncle Sam has always been your friend
Well, except when you were Female Black Young Gay "Don't ask Don't tell", right? What's the difference if I'm willing to fight? But perfection is blurry in a land that doesn't play By the rules that it's made
Majority rules & the good ol' U.S. Is better than the rest Salute your stars and stripes Buy a flag and God bless
Red, White, & Blue like a Versace trend Too many innocents lost 9/11 was about opening the eyes of this nation and It's those fatherless children who've paid that cost
We who are so cocky with the pains of injustice We've equally wrought "We've overcome our history" We're not better than our past or any other nation We just haven't been caught
Stay off that bandwagon & remember Don't buy your pride from a flag peddling street vendor Be an original Not a patriotic pretender
