Autobiography Of A Nation

Album: Full Collapse (2001)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This song is about the oppression of the Native Americans early in the history of The United States: "We have burned their villages and all the people in them died, we adopt their customs and everything they say we steal." The song deals with how today we just seem to overlook that part of our past and just go on pretending it never happened: "Yeah, we all dance to the same beat when we we're marching. Yeah, the TV tells us everything we need to know." >>
