Shawn James & The Shapeshifters – American Hearts lyrics
[Verse 1]
We were raised by wolves and we are still wild
And we howl when the troubled wind blows
And in the TV's blue light, oh, assassins will lie
Every wail just a-going down slow

[Chorus]
So, don't tread on me
For I am your brother
I was born with an American heart
And don't tread on her
For she is your sister
She was born with an American heart

[Verse 2]
All the people you meet down in the streets
May be good, but they don't wanna know
So they cover their eyes, for who wants to be sad
Life is sweet at the bottom of the sea

[Chorus]
So, don't tread on me
For I am your brother
I was born with an American heart
And don't tread on her
For she is your sister
She was born with an American heart

[Verse 3]
And all the mothers will cry, fathers stay up all night
With the worry that goes to the bones
And if your God makes war, then he's no God I know
'Cause Christ would not send boys to die

[Chorus]
So, don't tread on me
For I am your brother
I was born with an American heart
And don't tread on her
For she is your sister
She was born with an American heart

[Verse 4]
Don't you get low as hell
When the peace dove is felled
By a men with the blackest of minds
And above the din let the sighin' begin
As we're bound for the longest of days

[Chorus/Outro]
So, don't tread on me
For I am your brother
I was born with an American heart
And don't tread on her
For she is your sister
She was born with an American heart
