Lyrics:

I feel lost in the land of my fathers
I feel lost in a land I don’t like
I feel lost in a land of dead founders
I feel lost in a land I can’t keep alright

so I’ll
hang the thief, burn the witches
crown the king sick with riches
hail the thief, save the children
break the good men out of prison

Sometimes I wanna get out of the country
someday I’ll just pack my bags and leave
but for now I’m still in the American wastelands
full of plastic bags and naked trees

so I’ll
hang the thief, burn the witches
crown the king sick with riches
hail the thief, save the children
break the good men out of prison

If I were the president if I were that man
id step off my pedestal, find a place to stand

if I were the president if I were that man
id step off my pedestal, find a place to stand
