lyrics

during the spanish conquest
natives were striped, hung and burned
the cries i heard never made me
much concerned.

i’ve trampled every last corner of the globe
in guise of bravery
relegated birds beast rivers and trees,
human beings to slavery

wide lawns and narrow minds are my reality.
i am the paranoia that creates police brutality.

my face is is almost beautiful,
made perfect by cosmetics,
i am the father of the
manipulation of genetics.

i'm prone to stuffing humans into locked rooms
with little air, and absolutely no voices.

i’m your boss, i’m your landlord,
i’m the judge and such,
i'm the one making sure that your
children never amount to much.

and i killed the Indian and i
didn't save the child,
i had my reasons why,
i just can't remember.

The sun rose then fell, inhaled then exhaled. Thereby making time, for flowering brains.
