American Soul Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Blessed are the bullies
For one day they will have to stand up to themselves
Blessed are the liars
For the truth can be awkward
Verse 2
It's not a place
This country is to me a sound
Of drum and bass
You close your eyes to look around
Verse 3
Look around, look around
Look around, it's a sound
Look around, look around
It's a sound
Verse 4
It's not a place
This country is to me a thought
That offers grace
For every welcome that is sought
Verse 5
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American soul
Verse 6
It's not a place
This is a dream the whole world owns
The pilgrim's face
It had your heart to call her home
Verse 7
Call her home, Brother John
So every mother's weepin'
Dream on, Brother John
In your dreams you get me sleepin'
Verse 8
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American soul
Verse 9
American, American
Verse 10
Put your hands in the air
Hold on the sky
Could be too late, but we still gotta try
There's a moment in our life where a soul can die
And the person in a country when you believe the lie
The lie (the lie, the lie)
There's a promise in the heart of every good dream
It's a call to action, not to fantasy
The end of a dream, the start of what's real
Let it be unity, let it be community
For refugees like you and me
A country to receive us
Will you be our sanctuary
Refu-Jesus
Verse 11
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American soul
Verse 12
You are rock and roll
You and I are rock and roll
You are rock and roll
Came here looking for American soul
Verse 13
American soul, American soul
