Sons of Privilege (3:21)

Cover of Old Crows / Young Cardinals

From Old Crows / Young Cardinals

America blearing in my ears all day
America, I don’t see the glory of your ways
The oldest money flows through a bloodline
We’ll see if your empire stands the test of time
Don’t wanna
I don’t wanna
Be a slave to the sons of privilege
Don’t wanna
I don’t wanna
Be a slave to the sons of privilege

Sweet lady liberty -
You are lost, though you are free
And what hides beneath
Can’t tell the wolves from the sheep

America, grin and bare the resentment of the world

With all your ugliness and self-worth
Desperate to grease the gears of the hideous machine
The swine, they writhe and praise the infallible regime
Don’t wanna
I don’t wanna
Be a slave to the sons of privilege
Don’t wanna
I don’t wanna
Be a slave to the sons of privilege

Sweet lady liberty -
You are lost, though you are free
And what hides beneath
Can’t tell the wolves from the sheep

Lost though you are free
In America
It’s time to justify your pride

Sweet lady liberty -
You are lost, though you are free
And what hides beneath
Can’t tell the wolves from the sheep

    This song kinda reminds me of their cover of Moneen called "passing out in America" in Swithceroo series. This is for me one of the best songs on OC/YC, and on the first listen of the album even when I was sceptical and thinking "no! what have you done?" I still thought then this song is one of their best ever.

    @hardlyworkin: no, I'm sure AOF knows that they don't need to vindicate for what the American Government is doing - I think it's just a critical Song about the U.S. Politics.
