13 Islands of Monkey Island Lyrics

Man the big boss got knifed yesterday,
It was a perfect kill,
A tragedy of enormous consequences,
And yet there was no bell,
The dynamics of democracy
Have stretched us to the seam,
When we look back we'll realize
It was truly an American dream

In a world of lesser nations,
We were arrogant and overly proud,
We were colorful, creative and driven,
We were shameless, fast and loud,
Our fearlessness and power, were the envy of the world, For an instant nature faltered, Every time our flag unfurled
Today our will has weakened,
The truth has made us shy,
The government we trusted,
Can't look us in the eye,
Those children's songs in school we'd sing,
The land of the brave and the free,
Meant business backed by armies,
Would plunder the world unabashedly
And so on Monkey Island
We've awakened from our sleep,
We may lose the revolution But our dignity will keep
