Look at what's behind us
The past leaves splinters in our arms
We try pulling them out
Before they do more harm

Our way of life is shaped by
The struggles of another
The tale no one told our mothers
Fabricated by the others

So we go on blind
The truth tucked away behind
The lies they told to cover up
The most heinous of crimes

Well they say history repeats
So the world won't go on

The greatest structures on the earth
Were built by people worth less than dirt
They carried headstones to their graves
Dug their own holes with rusted spades

Enslaving people for their gain
In mounds of wealth they hid their shame
They wiped their hands clean of the dirt
Then showed up Sunday at their church

Thought themselves favored by god
Deserving of his love and laud
Turned a blind eye, turned a blind eye
To everything

You've got your points based on the past
Though it's the only thing
You lack a grasp on
You hypocrite

We fought a pointless fucking war,
Both sides refused to see what was
More important
Than politics

They'll say the past is justified,
Expect you to join their side
It's all for
Their own benefit

They'll say the past is justified,
Expect you to just believe the lies
They tell you
They're full of shit
