ALANIS MORISSETTE lyrics : "Awakening Americans (Unreleased)"

Awakening Americans

We watch movies of murder and we censor the breast

Give thanks for the murders of Chris Columbus
We kill our own and we vote for the man
The lesser of evils and us starring in the role of victim


I wonder how we change if we can in this land
I wonder how many mountains we'd move if we band together

Us priveleged Americans

We pass our revisions onto the next generation

We kneel to the gods of corporation
We eat when we're full and we hord all the rest
With our hands on remotes we say "Yes, we're the best!"


I wonder what we'd change in this land cause we can
Even with western centricity this rampant

Us ugly Americans

Tied are not my hands

But see strangers and lineaments
As part of me; as you
For me this awakening Canadian


We teach our offspring for themselves; every man
We shrug our shoulders and create yet another "ism"

We dissuade our young from using their imagination
We avert our eyes from this
Our very own manifestation


I wonder what will change in this land, cause we can
I wonder how many mouths we'd fill if we band together

Us awakening Americans

On his face

He blew the others
Out of the water
He said and was glad

They were disgraced
All these symptoms symptoms are simpler 'cause
I've had moments in my life when I've contributed by believing we are

Separate we are separate
Disconnected in this unity


He stole what he could
He only had minutes before he'd be caught
He justified every penny taken by blaming the gap between the rich and rich not

All these symptoms symptoms are simpler 'cause
I've had moments in my life when I've contributed by believing we are
Separate we are separate

Disconnected in this unity
Separate we are separate
Disconnected in this unity
