1. Less a Patriot

From the recordings Less a Patriot and Petulant Zen


This is my history
This is my homeland
I wasn't born with oil money
Or a shotgun in my hand
Unbridled jingoism
I cannot comprehend
Am I less a patriot
I'd defend this union
With my life if called upon to
My blood is boiling red
My soul eternal blue
But my skin is not white
It's of a different hue
Am I less a patriot
I don't believe in damnation
Scaring us to hell
Geography so evil
Children born to kill
I believe worship in the churches
But not on Capitol Hill
Am I less a patriot
Is freedom just a word
When truth is seldom heard
