  • Yo, shout to everybody
    Who's been on this trip with me
    You don't have to, agree
    But if you feel like me

    Someone get this Aryan a sheet
    Time to bury him, so tell him to prepare to get impeached
    Everybody on your feet
    This is where terrorism and heroism meet, square off in the street
    This chump barely even sleeps
    All he does is watch Fox News like a parrot and repeats
    While he looks like a canary with a beak
    Why you think he banned transgenders from the military with a tweet?
    He's tryin' to divide us, this shit's like a cult
    But like Johnny he'll only unite us
    'Cause nothin' inside us drives us like this fight does
    Similar to when two cars collide 'cause
    Our spirit's crushed, and this spot's a tight one
    But here the jaws of life come
    To pull us from the wreckage, that's what we get pride from
    When we can't from our stars and stripes cause
    This type of pickle that we're in is hard to deal
    But there's always tomorrow still
    If we start from scratch like a scab, get the scars to heal
    And band together for Charlottesville
    And for Heather, fallen heroes, fill this wall with murals
    Nevada get up, hit the damn resetter
    Let's start from zero, this is our renewal
    Spray tan, get rid of, get a brand new, better
    America, and here's to where it all

    And here's to where we all began, all began (stand up!)
    Here's to the land that made me
    And made me who I am, who I am (hands up!)
    Here's to the land that raised me
    This one for the only place that really knows me
    From the cracks in the road that drove me
    There's no place like home

    Didn't wanna piss your base off, did ya?
    Can't denounce the Klan, 'cause they play golf with ya
    You stay on Twitter, way to get your hate off
    Nazi, I do not see a way y'all differ
    And all you got are race cards, bigot
    The swastika with your name carved in it
    Should be your trademark, 'cause hate's all you played off
    And you just lick the plate off
    So I guess it pays to feed off of chaos
    So basically, you ate off Hitler!
    But you ain't ruinin' our country, punk
    Or takin' our pride from us, you won't define us
    'Cause like a dictionary, things are lookin' up
    So much, got a sprained neck, know we would rise up
    Against this train wreck and take a stand
    Even if it means sittin' when they raise the flag
    To sing "The Star-Spangled Banner"
    This man just praised a statue of General Lee
    'Cause he generally hates the black people, degrades hispanics
    Take it back to the Shady national convention
    Wish I woulda spit on it before I went to shake his hand
    At the event or maybe had the wherewithal
    To know that he was gonna try to tear apart
    Our sacred land we cherish and stand for
    So, hands in the air, let's hear it for
    The start of a brand new America
    Without him and be proud of where we're from
    And here's to where we all

    And here's to where we all began, all began (stand up!)
    Here's to the land that made me
    And made me who I am, who I am (hands up!)
    Here's to the land that raised me
    This one for the only place that really knows me
    From the cracks in the road that drove me
    There's no place like home

    I won't give up
    I won't give up on my home, that so many died for
    You already know that I won't give up
    I won't give up on my home, that so many died for
    You already know
    There's no place like home, no place like home
    Wherever I go, no place like home
    No place like home, no place like home
    Wherever I go (yeah)

    Here's to where we all began, all began (stand up!)
    Here's to the land that made me
    And made me who I am, who I am (hands up!)
    Here's to the land that raised me
    This one for the only place that really knows me
    From the cracks in the road that drove me
    There's no place like home Writer/s: Alicia Keys, Andrew Jackson, Canei Finch, Geoffrey Oncue, Holly Hafermann, Justin Smith, Luis Resto, Marshall Mathers, Myles Moraites, Paul Rosenberg
