you are my captor
my bayonet
it is my duty
to fall on it

you are my other
my silhouette
it is my duty
to disguise it

bricks! mortar!
bricks! mortar!
manifest destiny
viva revolution!
viva revolution!
retreat

you are my captor
my bayonet
it is my duty
to fall on it

you are my other
my silhouette
it is my duty
to disguise it

color dictates and culture follows (x4)
viva revolution! (x4)
colors, culture (x3)
modern culture progress

retreat

    General CommentRevolution, obviously. The song might be mentioning the American Revolution, with words like "bayonet" and "manifest destiny".
    The lines "color dictates and culture follows" could also be referring to America, because "color" of your skin dictated what your social standing would be- obviously with slavery and every thing.

    pretty much given. viva revolution!
