Grean Tea The Artist – Nationalism lyrics

(We the people of the United States…)

For the first time in my life
I’m feelin’ different ‘bout the color of my skin
New self conscious ways
Noticing people’s gaze
And the state it puts me in.
Now I don’t know why we’ve gotta divide and categorize.

They say this country’s full we can’t take ya
If you try to come here we gon’ make ya
Turn around and go right back to where you came from

This ain’t no way to be
Don’t turn away no refugee
Just imagine if that was you and me
Don’t turn away no refugee

Check out the new emperor’s cloths
Clearly it’s plain to see
Like a tin man with no heart
He can only wear ego on his sleeve.

Now hate and division are resolutions
Walk all over the Constitution
But the world won’t stand for this
Brave resistors raise your fists!

This ain’t no way to be
Don’t turn away no refugee
Just imagine if that was you and me
Don’t turn away no refugee

Students, doctors, husbands and brothers
Kept apart from their sisters and mothers.
Sick people left alone to die
All because of one man’s pride.
I can’t, I can’t hold it in no more
When I see no light lit next to that golden door.
Love your neighbor as you love yourself
Packed in a box and left on a shelf.

We won’t take it,
Don’t mistake it!
No we won’t take it!

This ain’t no way to be
Don’t turn away no refugee
Just imagine if that was you and me

This ain’t no way to be
Don’t turn away no refugee
Just imagine if that was you and me
Don’t turn away no refugee!
