Treasure Island

The Immortal Resilience

(12-19 / ME MOMMA'S BELLY)

America


America

Soaring as the eagle does
This country flew to freedom
Fleeing from pain
And seeking the quality in life

America
My darling
Dread not the future
Study the past
And reveal the present

America
My love
Feed your children
Shelter your friends
And defend your honor

Metal waterfowl filled the sky
Grabbing the clouds
And deflecting death
Taking the earth to the battefield

America
Savage America
Destroy a home
And kill a family
Leaving the vengeance to the sons

America
Devastating America
Hiroshima misses its country
