Track Name: Twilight In America
Twilight in America comes due
Now the gloaming glows red white and blue
All savants and dilettantes have failed democracy
Freedom reeks of Jesus-freaks in veiled hypocrisy
The immigrant is swindled and the native is betrayed
Twilight in America
The inmates are afraid
Twilight in America
See how old glories fade

Twilight in America comes down
Yankee Doodle’s lost his way to town
Burning flags and scalawags and reason on the run
A reckoning that’s echoing the setting of the sun
The debt is getting heavy and the odds are none too slim
Twilight in America
The citadel's grown dim
Twilight in America
The reaper's looking grim

Indian summer recedes into autumn
Oh say can you see from your spot on the bottom
Star-spangled dusk is a last gleaming sign
A history of victory in misery and decline

Twilight in America comes on
We the people worship 'til it's gone
Enemy hegemony perpetuates the fraud
That's what war is always for:
Monopolies on God
Hidden in the strictures of the Christian Taliban
Twilight in America
Home of the Ku Klux Klan
Twilight in America
Where truth is contraband
Twilight in America
An empire built on sand
Twilight in America
The fruits of stolen land
