"Mirrorful" as written by and James/barbot Robbins....
Blue-eyed bloody lullaby
Less a lesson than an alibi
Shot from only one side
Sanitize then canonize

Annex and index
Mirror too-perfect

Histories
I don't believe
I don't believe
I don't believe

Listened every day 'til 3
I'm the bitter beneficiary
Illustrate the story
Advertise your dignity

Annex and index
Mirror to perfect

Histories
I don't believe
I don't believe
I don't believe

Grains of sand
To mirror glass
Righteousness
Blazes back
Twist the past
And reward the arrogance

Grains of sand
To mirror glass
Righteousness
Blazing back
Twist the past
And reward the arrogance

I don't believe
I don't believe
I don't believe

I don't believe, I don't believe
I don't believe, I don't believe
I don't believe, I don't believe

    General Commentits about the glorification of colonialism in the education system, and probably in general. The line "i'm the bitter beneficiaery" suggests this is coming from a cynical white person's perspective of what they are being taught because they know they ultimately benefited from such horrible historical epidemics yet feel angry and maybe ashamed because of that. I wish i could find more songs with this take about wanting to expose and reject ideas of heroicism concerning white heritage and supremecy, its a good message.
