I was born in North America
But I will never buy any land here
This land is not mine to own
It will never be mine to own

Even though I was born here
I am still a European invader
This land will never belong to me
I'm an invader, can't you see?

Europeans came to this great land
And murdered the indigenous people
That is a fact
And try as you might
You can never hide this genocide

If I bought land here, I'd be rewarding genocide, sending a message that
Genocide is profitable
I don't want any blood on my hands
So I refuse to buy a piece of these lands

If I bought land here, I'd be rewarding genocide, sending a message that
Genocide is profitable
I don't want any blood on my hands
So I refuse to buy a piece of these lands

Make America great again?
America never was great
It's a nation built on genocide
That is a fact no one can hide

Europeans have no right to tell indigenous people where they can and can't live
White people are the real illegal immigrants
We should be the ones asking for permission to stay

Europeans think they own land in North America, but
In reality they do not
Land ownership is a white man's concept
I refuse to buy land and reward genocide

If I bought land here, I'd be rewarding genocide, sending a message that
Genocide is profitable
I don't want any blood on my hands
So I refuse to buy a piece of these lands

If I bought land here, I'd be rewarding genocide, sending a message that
Genocide is profitable
I don't want any blood on my hands
So I refuse to buy a piece of these lands

Make America great again?
America never was great
It's a nation built on genocide
That is a fact no one can hide

If I bought land here, I'd be rewarding genocide, sending a message that
Genocide is profitable
I don't want any blood on my hands
So I refuse to buy a piece of these lands

If I bought land here, I'd be rewarding genocide, sending a message that
Genocide is profitable
I don't want any blood on my hands
So I refuse to buy a piece of these lands
