The United States of Amnesia

Robert Wyatt
Language: English

There are degrees of amnesia, ways to forget
ways to remember all the good that you've done
and if you can't get a witness remind yourselves
nobody's just perfectly good all the time
and if you killed all those redskins long, long ago
well, they'd all be dead now anyway, anyway
don't let that ghost disconcert you (the) lord will provide
(a) nice little headstone for the brave Cherokee
(so let's have) not reservations let's have a clean sweep
clearing the way for the land of the free
let's hear it for civilisation once more
build your aryan empire in peace
