This is not America


This is not America

Shala la la la
A little piece of you

The little peace in me

Will die

For this is not America
Blossom fails to bloom this season

Promise not to stare

Too long

For this is not a miracle
There was a time

A storm that blew so pure

For this could be the biggest sky

And I could have the faintest idea
For this is not America

This is not America

This is not
Snowman melting from the inside

Falcon spirals

To the ground

So bloody red

tomorrow’s clouds
A little piece of you

The little piece in me

Will die

For this is not America
There was a time

A wind that blew so young

For this could be the biggest sky

And I could have the faintest idea
For this is not America

This is not America

This is not
This is not America

This is not

This is not America

This is not
