about

I really don't care if you are a Republican, Democrat, or anything in between. This song is intended as a reminder, that we as Americans are part of something bigger.

Unfortunately, our current leadership would love nothing more than to pit us against each other in hopes of keeping us all busy and distracted while they do everything in their power to benefit themselves and their rich friends.

Our opinions may vary sometimes, but I don't think we are as different as they like to pretend.

lyrics

I'm afraid he sold you a lie
And soon you're gonna find that
You were nothing more than a pawn in their game
I know it's easy to believe
A liar when they speak the words you
Want to believe, if they make you feel safe

It ain't new in history
Exploit your insecurities
With a little bit of fear mongering
And they'll get their way
Keep you distracted hating me
And me in disbelief
When really behind the scenes
They aint no good for nobody

We're not so different you and me
I think we mostly want the same things
I want to feel safe
Keep my bills paid
We're not so different you and me
I think we mostly want the same things
Wanna live a life I love
In a place I'm proud to be

I'm afraid he sold you a lie
And soon you're gonna find
It's not for you that that they
Wanna make this country great again
