I came to talk to you
cuz the whole is listening
won’t you sing a song or two

East Nashville
if your streets were filled with blood
would you change your tune at all
or just sing songs ‘bout making love

Did no one sound the trumpet
Did Paul Revere take a wrong turn
or did you just get way too busy
watching the whole town burn

You’re the beat of all the world
You set the rhythm with your lead
While humanity is crying
don’t turn away while they just bleed

Sing ‘bout how they killed Kennedy
and killed Martin Luther King
took your right to be free
while they stole most everything

America’s been hijacked
but it wasn’t by a plane
see no plane hit the Pentagon
was a missile fired by them

East Nashville
soon I’m leavin’ you
I’m going back to Washington
Sing now for the coup
