White Father

by Jesse Macht



with special influence from "The People's History of The United States".

Lyrics lifted from quotes within the texts.


Verse 1
The soil runs warm with blood
white father, won't put down his gun.
Whispers through the air
Your bullets won't fight fair.
Why start with this one?
Come Revolution

Verse 2
Grey concrete, echo with the cries.
White father, dreams have turned to lies.

You can call it peace,
but the west will soon turn east.

Why start with this one
Come Revolution

When the world has become so stale and stupid.
All the ships ought be shot and sunk
When the soldiers have all turned into thugs
And the cities battered down and won
There would be fun in that.
Something to talk about.
Is death not soon enough?
Come Revolution.

How am I to feel
when my history books are really a lie.
How am I to know
If the stories have been told from one side.
