Of course, I always wanted more than I ever was to get.
I mean, isn’t that what’s expected from an American kid?
“You can have it all, so go ahead and dream big.
There’s never been a country who can give you all of this.
If you want an opportunity, then the U.S.A. is it.”
And I remember when we invited anyone to come in.
But now it’s just our shame stained on our skin.
And a legacy of lies told from within.
So, I don’t want it anymore, and I’m finished trying
To promote the nation claiming to be king without a king.
And you know they always told us to let freedom ring.
But this has never been true freedom, just disguised imprisoning.
