Thirteen Stories High

Una canzone patriottica di contestazione della politica militare americana. "Vogliamo indietro il nostro paese"
This is my country, we are at war
Can’t seem to get along with so many others
But the people of this land they don’t want this fight
They seem to understand that we’re all sisters and brothers
But the leaders of this hungry pack of wolves
They have tasted the blood of the masses
And they won’t rest until they’ve changed all the rules
And we’ve had to suffer these fools and jackasses

It’s time to stop them in their tracks,
it’s time to take our country back
Put their ideas in a sack, recycle for redemption
It’s time to show them to the door,
they won’t be needed anymore
Tell them there will be no more warbased upon preemption

This is my country, this is my home
But homeland security is just one of their alibis
The stories that they tell and the stories that we hear
Are just the lies they use to perpetrate a state of fear

It’s time to stop them in their tracks,
it’s time to take our country back
Put their ideas in a sack, recycle for redemption
It’s time to show them to the door,
they won’t be needed anymore
Tell them there will be no more war based upon preemption

These recruiters down in our schools
You know if they could they would take ‘em even younger
It’s a travesty and it’s not cool
To put our kids under the charge of these war mongers

It’s time to stop them in their tracks,
it’s time to take our country back
Put their ideas in a sack, recycle for redemption
It’s time to show them to the door,
they won’t be needed anymore
Tell them there will be no more war based upon preemption

Looking down some childhood alley
Searching for some sunset out across some sacred valley
This is my country, this is my home
And I know when I say these words that I am not alone

It’s time to stop them in their tracks,
it’s time to take our country back
Put their ideas in a sack, recycle for redemption
It’s time to show them to the door,
they won’t be needed anymore
Tell them there will be no more war based upon preemption

This is our country, this is our home This is our country, this is our home

Bentornato, Piersante...ma da quanto tempo era che non ti facevi vivo...? Davvero gradito risentirti qua dentro!
