FRONTLINE EP 2017

lyrics

Colossus

The 2016 US presidency was won on a platform of blatant racism, most notably the proposed Muslim travel ban and US / Mexico border wall. To this, we say:

"Divided we fall!"

Black lines and shades of pastel colors
Adorn the face of mounted globes
No borders span across the prairies
No walls divide their gentle slopes
Some men wish to forge them between us
Some men with no love in their hearts

War elephants deployed to battle
Machines designed to scar the earth
Generals dispatching calvaries
Are contractors commanding serfs

The Great Wall of Bigots
Designed by our president
Posing for a photo op
To “Make America White Again”

Egos rival Ozymandias
This demagogue has claimed this land
So we of all nations and backgrounds
Join at the line drawn in the sand

Colossus! Colossus!

Fill the trenches dredged for the foundation
Brothers and sisters locking arms
Together bearing our afflictions
Like a crown of thorns

We, the immigrants
Мы, иммигранты
We, the dissidents
Мы, диссиденты

Condemn this monument
Dismantled brick by brick
