07. Future History Of The Broken-Hearted

How To Live With A Curse
by Stavesacre



 

You play the firing squad; Iíll be the target
Iíll just stand here broken-hearted and amazed
You are the angry mob, I hear you calliní
Your Straw-man Gallows swing with
hunger unrestrained

(Chorus)
Youíve raped my eyes wide open
Now itís easy to see (itís easy to see)
How youíd say Iím guilty of treason
So un-American
Just donít call me blind

Reach over cotton fields; look past the jungles
Post-cards from Wounded Knee and burning desert hells
So long as you can sleep clear of your conscience
Leave future history to those who write so well

(Chorus)

I swear my allegiance to the memory
The shadow
Of a nation that could have been
I swear my allegiance to the memory
The shadow
Of a nation that never was

(Chorus)

(c) 2006
