    america, you're killing me
    just one big plantation full of seeds
    from sea to shining sea
    one big plot of liberty
    america, you're killing me
    -"Plantation"

      name your price

     

lyrics

all the christmas lights have lost their ends
good thing it'll never be christmas again
you'll lose all your deposits
and you'll wonder where you got them from
to begin with

an opportunity is yours if you pay the right amount
who's that?
it's just big brother taggin' along to help you out
any major corporation
on an internet connection
can foot the bill to be privy to your personal selection
yes
and once you turn 18
your future's not your own
you just need to get a letter to steal you from your home
the government will bait you: cash, college ed or cars
and in return you get a one-way ticket
to fight a war you didn't start

oh, yes
america is free
free for everyone
oh, say, can't you see?
oh, yes
america is free
free for everyone

america, you're killin' me
just one big plantation full of seeds
from sea to shining sea
one big plot of liberty
america, you're killin' me

you gotta be old enough to drive
you gotta be old enough to drink
there should be an age for marajuana, i think
cos the bouncers know that crowd
"take the car, no one's around...
...but get that joint out of your mouth."

and all the city workers get to take off every holiday
wonder if they think of MLK
while they're gettin' paid?
and you and I work Saturdays
just to fill our tank
and then we get fired anyway, cos of company cutbacks
no
we can't smoke a joint
no
we can't get our checks
and it's illegal to get married
unless you're oppositely sexed
let's let women marry women
and men can marry men
let's save the term "civil union"
for what the USA shoulda been

oh, yes
america is free
free for everyone
oh, say, can't you see?
oh, yes
america is free
free for everyone

america, you're killin' me
just one big plantation full of seeds
from sea to shining sea
one big plot of equality
america, you're killin' me
