Casualties – The Great American Progress lyrics

Get Revenge
Against the lies
Find the Truth
Open Your Eyes

Their textbooks mask the truth
History lies, make you a fool
Columbus came, see Natives killed
A holiday, for the blood that spilled

Ignorance and oppression
Blacks in fields from dusk till dawn
Watchful eyes and white mans whip
Great American Progress

Get Revenge
Against the lies
Find the Truth
Open Your Eyes

The Chinese, forced to obey
Submission, abandoned ways
The Irish came, considered bums
Fend for themselves, crammed into slums

Supposed land of the free
American family tree
Supposed land of the free
Lady Liberty lied to me

See history repeat itself
Its happening over again

Get Revenge
Against the lies
Find the Truth
Open Your Eyes

The Japanese, born in this land
In '45 concentration camps
New immigrants they have no chance
Border closed, Take a stand

Supposed land of the free
Lady Liberty lied to me
Supposed land of the free
That stupid bitch lied to me
