I Want A New America

I want a new America this stuff’s getting old
I’m tired of bein’ hungry and I’m tired of bein’ cold
I’m tired of gettin’ lied to every time I turn around
I want a new America or this one’s comin’ down

I want a new America, I guess you heard me right
it’s been so dark so long I can’t remember what it’s like
we been leavin’ bloody fingerprints everywhere we go
I want a new America or somethin’s gonna blow

yes it’s a good idea
yes it can be true
I want a new America
and I think you do too

yes a change is comin’
I can feel it in the wind
I want a new America
and it’s comin’ around the bend

I want a new America one where I can be proud
I can hold my head up and I can say it out loud
I’m tired of makin’ excuses for every mess we make
there’s gonna be some changes or somethin’s gonna break

I want a new America we can be better than this
we can learn to shake hands instead of makin’ a fist
goodbye to graveyard bullies goodbye to guns and drums
I want a new America the time has come

yes it’s a good idea
yes it can be true
I want a new America
and I think you do too

yes a change is comin’
I can feel it in the wind
I want a new America
and it’s comin’ around the bend
