lyrics

This country's a factory for
Knocks on a black church door
This country's a factory for
Waving flags from the Civil War

This country's a blood stained land
I look at my own hands
This country's a blood stained land
"neath the white hood of the clan

How could you say Dr. Kings dream ever came true
When for selling cigarettes, you wind up choked out on the avenue
How could you say that Jim Crow is done
When there's nine more people dead in Charleston

This country has a factory gate
That locks in decades of hate
This country has a factory gate
That was built up to segregate

This country can never go back
To the sound of the bull whip crack
This country can never go back
And get us off of this track

How could you say Dr. Kings dream ever came true
When for selling cigarettes, you wind up choked out on the avenue
How could you say that Jim Crow is done
When there's nine more people dead in Charleston

This country is a factory for
Gunmen outside the church door
This country is a factory for
Now I don't wanna sing anymore
