Alec Benjamin - America Lyrics




You've been hanging your conscience on the fence
Cause you can't hold it
An empty promise laid to rest
A life is stolen
And there will be no consequence
For what you've broken
Don't you know, what your father said?

We are the only
We are the brave
We are America, but
We are to blame

Stand up! Stand up!
Can you hear me now?
All I! All I!
Really want now is
Your voice! Your voice!
Screaming out loud, saying
We can make it, or we can make it
Fist up! Fist up!
Don't put your hands down!
All I! All I!
Really want now is
Your voice! Your voice!
Screaming out loud, saying
We can make it, or we can make it

We've been biting our tongues for far too long
And they know it
They told us that hope would carry on
They really had us going
And there will be no consequence
For your sinful hypnosis
Don't you know, what your father said?

We are the only
We are the brave
We are America, but
We are to blame

Stand up! Stand up!
Can you hear me now?
All I! All I!
Really want now is
Your voice! Your voice!
Screaming out loud, saying
We can make it, or we can make it
Fist up! Fist up!
Don't put your hands down!
All I! All I!
Really want now is
Your voice! Your voice!
Screaming out loud, saying
We can make it, or we can make it

    [Verse 1]
    You've been hanging your conscious on the fence
    Cause you can't hold it
    An empty promise laid to rest
    A life is stolen
    And there will be no consequence
    For what you've broken
    Don't you know, what your father said?

    [Pre-Chorus]
    We are the only, we are the brave
    We are America, but we are to blame

    [Chorus]
    Stand up, stand up, can you hear me now?
    All I, all I really want now is
    Your voice, your voice screaming out loud, saying:
    "We can make it, oh, we can make it"
    Fist up, fist up, don't put your hands down!
    All I, all I really want now is
    Your voice, your voice screaming out loud, saying:
    "We can make it, oh we can make it"

    [Verse 2]
    We've been biting our tongues for far too long
    And they know it
    They told us that hope would carry on
    They really had us going
    And there will be no consequence

    Don't you know, what your father said?

    [Pre-Chorus]
    We are the only, we are the brave
    We are America, but we are to blame

    [Chorus]
    Stand up, stand up, can you hear me now?
    All I, all I really want now is
    Your voice, your voice screaming out loud, saying:
    "We can make it, oh, we can make it"
    Fist up, fist up, don't put your hands down!
    All I, all I really want now is
    Your voice, your voice screaming out loud, saying:
    "We can make it, oh we can make it"
