RUNNIN' FROM AMERICA
(to the tune of "America" by Neil Diamond)
Lyrics 2007 Emi M. Briet

Car
Johnny lives in his car
Without a home
Laid off for someone far

Free
They don't like that we're free
That's what we're told
And we had best believe

In the banks of overseas
Not tradin' with America
Never looking back again
They're runnin' from America

Home, how it doesn't seem that way
Airline travel's light today
Cause I can't bring it on
Might resemble a bomb

Home, it's a new and scary place
Dubya's made a world disgrace
Freedom's light is lukewarm
They're trying to make it the norm

Everywhere around the world
They're flippin' off America
Every time that flag unfurls
They're spittin' on America

Got a dream and give a care
Don't bother with America
Got a dream you want to share
You're shut up by America

They're runnin' from America
They're runnin' from America
They're runnin' from America
They're runnin' from America
Today, today, today, today, today

My Congress 'tis of thee
(Today)
I have one honest plea
(Today)
Let freedom ring
(Today)
Make Dubya sing
(Today)
