Armageddons charging out through the steeple gates
Piercing stigmas through those who questioned gods existence
And who have denounce religious escapades
Columbus sailed in search of gold across the Atlantic
such great discoveries on timbers against waves
Gunpowder and cannons aimed at defenseless natives
They reached a coast and were welcome by indigenous
So, the Catholics took advantage of their hospitalities
Enforced European traditions and language
Enslaved the indigenous, shipped them off to Great Britain
And their thirst for gold run through the valley mines
Then came the english settlers with their plans to colonize
genocide spreading throughout the Americas
small pox, the whitey's influenza...
If only the earth was flat...
they wouldve sailed off the edge of a map
All those who thought differently were subject to witch hut
Burned at the stacks, lynched or imprisoned in a rut
Made stolen resources a commodity of spicies, sugar, and property
Civilization once in harmony, are now chapters of our history
Unjustified triumphs written in textbooks as told by whites
Theyve told us about John smith, compared him to Jesus Christ
And now we celebrate thanksgiving as if they can ever relate
Weve stole their fresh soil and bordered them into states
We shouldnt be so, proud, not have any pride at all
we havent learned from history still empire rise and fall
