Let's analyze the situation
Your children are programmed by the same ten songs in rotation
When it's not about expression anymore
When it's not about expression anymore
It's about which fad is bigger
It's about which fad is bigger
So don't play us on the radio
Don't let your children hear this song
They might identify with what I'm saying

Don't play us on the radio
Don't let your children hear this song
But the soul of music is deeper than you allow your child to think

Don't you limit the mind of your child
Don't you limit the mind of your child

Hold on now
You have got your choice
Make it known that a billion small voices are loud
Hold on now
You have got your choice
Make it known
That it's not about their money anymore

I've got some questions I need answered
Can your conscience allow you to commit the murder
You to commit the murder
The murder of a mind
The most destructive kind
When you're still alive and burning inside

Don't you limit the mind of your child.
Don't you limit the mind of your child.

Hold on now
You have got your choice
Make it known that a billion small voices are loud
Hold on now
You have got your choice
Make it known
That it's not about their money anymore

Now folks
If you'd just step this way
You are about to witness
The most amazing
The most uncommon living monstrosity
Of all time

Don't you limit the mind of your child.
Don't you limit the mind of your child.

Hold on now
You have got your choice
Make it known that a billion small voices are loud
Hold on now
You have got your choice
Make it known
That it's not about their money anymore

    General CommentThe American Tragedy straight from Shreveport, Louisiana! It's about how the radio and rock industry is limiting the minds of the young rockers. How if they dont get away from mainstream rock, they will be a puppet. Its also about how their music is not about being the next (sell-out band) like Creed. People will listen to their music because of what it stands for. Not because they are on the front of Rock Magazines and shit. And most important;y, they will never play and comform because of what a record comp. wants. Check them out on Kazaa and Morpheus and shit. Totally awesome orginal Louisiana rock! Same city Kenny Wayne Sheppard reigned from.

    General CommentYou must be talking about a TOTALLY different band. I doubt their as good as San Diego's American Tragedy. The other 2 songs under American Tragedy are from the REAL American Tragedy from San Diego.

    General CommentActually.....all three songs are from the ONE and ONLY "The American Tragedy"!!!! They are from Shreveport, LA, but they get airplay out in San Diego because they have a very devoted fan/friend out there in Cali. I know because I am good friends with them...and help them out on occasion!! All 3 songs listed here are from their first CD entitled "Pennies". IF you like these songs...you havent heard ANYTHING yet!!! They just released their 2nd CD titled "The Soundtrack....". Check it out....its incredible. Unbelievable songwriting!!!!

    Check out their site
