'Merican

from Drown the Wind by West of House

lyrics

I only see with these Western eyes
That I'm the hero, never one of the bad guys
I got my book - you know that it's King James
Good enough for Jesus man so why should I ever change…

'Merican - it's hard to do
I don't have time to give a damn
But I got a pretty flag for you
'Merican - don't lose your shine
Just look white in the mirror, dear
And everything will be fine

I'm sure it's bright up on this hill
Just don't come any closer babe
And let's agree to just ignore the smell
Of broken dreams and expired intent
Everybody wants to stay but no one can afford the rent

'Merican - it's hard to do
I don't have time to give a damn
But I got a pretty flag for you
'Merican - don't lose your shine
Just look white in the mirror, dear
And everything will be fine

Why wouldn't we stay when it's all that we know
Do you really think that I would give up the dream
It seems to me that you could be here too
If you just tried a little harder
And I took my foot off your neck

'Merican - it's hard to do
I don't have time to give a damn
But I got a pretty flag for you
'Merican - don't lose your shine
Just look white in the mirror, dear
And everything will be...

'Merican - it's hard to do
I don't have time to give a damn
But I got a pretty flag for you
'Merican - don't lose your shine
Just look white in the mirror, dear
And everything will be fine
