"Your Turning Into John Wayne" as written by Sam Mctrusty, Ross Gavin Mcnae, Craig Ernest Kneale and Barry Nicholas Mckenna....
I've never been to America,
It's time that I learned the truth, the truth,
'Cause I just heard of a river,
All cultures spreads and then they pollute, they pollute.

Please try, don't take it personal,
'Cause I'm only going on the blatant proof,
So when I breathe your air,
Do you believe you're changing the earth?
Do you believe you're changing the earth?

Welcome to America,
They all say, that your dreams can't last forever,
But your heart can never stay,
Why do we imitate, all we love to hate?
So if there's one thing I wanna know,
It's how you feel about being American, American.

Every time there's a story,
I turn around, you're turning into John Wayne,
You're turning into John Wayne,
Now here's a grey Scottish theory,
Have you lost latitude and longitude?
Your latitude and longitude.

Now I know that I'm contradicting
Everything I own was made in the US of A,
Made in the USA

So when I breathe your air,
Do you believe you're changing the earth?
Do you believe you're changing the earth?

Welcome to America,
They all say, that your dreams can't last forever,
But your heart can never stay,
Why do we imitate, all we love to hate?
So if there's one thing I wanna know,
It's how you feel about being American, American.

You're turning into John Wayne,
Are you made in the USA?

Welcome to America,
They all say, that your dreams can't last forever,
But your heart can never stay,
Why do we imitate, all we love to hate?
So if there's one thing I wanna know,
It's how I feel about being American,
American.

    General CommentFew corrections.

    It should be "you're" not "your" in the title, before "changing the Earth" and in the lines with "turning into John Wayne".


    I�ve just heard of a rumor
    your culture spreads and then it pollutes

    Should be:
    'Cause I've just heard of a rumour
    all cultures spread and then they pollute

    I think that:
    Please try no to take it personal
    I'm only going on the blatant truth

    Should be (not sure):
    Please try, don't take it personal
    I'm only going on the blatant proof


    You made in the USA

    Should be:
    Are you made in the USA?


    My corrections are for the Vivarium version, at least. I dunno if there's a demo version and what the lyrics are like for it.

    Great song, anyhow =]

    General CommentTo me this song is very Emerson like. Very are you being true to yourself? Are you being who you believe you should be? I am American, but I love this song. Too many people give into what others say they should be. Too many people are becoming generic versions of other people. I love this band and I just heard them for the first time. I love that you can hear his accent in songs. So many times now people just cover up their accent. He accepts it....guess it makes sense with this song huh?
