Pearl Jam – I Am A Patriot lyrics

I was walking with my brother
And he wondered, how I am
I said what I believe in my soul
Ain't what I see with my eyes
And there's no turning back this time

I am a patriot, and I love my country
Because my country is all I know
Wanna be with my family
People who understand me
I got no place left to go

I was walking oh with my girlfriend
She looked so fine, I said, "Baby, what's on your mind?"
She said, I want to run like the lions
Released from their cages, released from the rages
Burning my soul tonight

And I ain't no communist
And I ain't no socialist
And I ain't no capitalist
And I ain't no imperialist

And I ain't no democrat
Sure ain't no republican either
I only know one party
And that is freedom
And that is freedom, freedom

And the rivers shall open for the righteous
And the rivers shall open for the righteous
And the rivers shall open for the righteous someday
