lyrics

Welcome to America:
the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Welcome to America:
where everything changes but just stays the same.
Deciding to leave or deciding to stay.
Will everything just be okay?
Welcome to America

Welcome to America:
the people in power have all got a plan.
Welcome to America:
they helped us elect an unqualified man.
They want you to trust in all that they say,
while stripping all your rights away.
Welcome to America

Get out and vote, cuz every vote matters;
except today: (cuz) no ceilings are shattered,
Unless you’re a straight white man.
Then they’ll do all that they can.

Welcome to America:
fly high the flag of the red, white, and blue.
Welcome to America:
fly high the flag of racism, too.
They think it’s okay, cuz “All Lives Matter”.
It’s never directed at you.
Welcome to America

Eight years ago, we called it treason,
but, now today, we all need a reason,
Unless you’re a straight white man.
Then they’ll do all that they can.

Welcome to America:
where once there was hope but now all hope has died.
Welcome to America:
where truth is denied but they’ll believe your lies.
They’ll come out in droves just to vote in a protest,
but never quite take a stand.
Welcome to America

So you decided to tear up our nation;
all on an unfounded investigation.
We did nothing wrong, but now we’re in prison.
We have lots to say, but no one will listen,
Unless you’re a straight white man.
Then they’ll do all that they can.

Welcome to…
Welcome to...
America
