Lyrics: Lowkey - Obama Nation

myLyrics BETA
[Intro]
This track is not an attack upon the American people,
Itís an attack upon the system within which they live.
Since 1945 the United States has attempted to overthrow more than 50 foreign governments,
In the process the US has caused the end of life for several million people,
And condemned many millions more to a life of agony and despair.[Verse 1]
The strength of your dreaming prevents you from reason,
The American dream only makes sense if youíre sleeping,
Itís just a cruel fantasy; their politics took my voice away,
But their music gave it back to me,
The land where the lumpen are consumed by consumption,
Killing themselves to shovel down food in abundance,
I guess a rapper from Britain is a rare voice,
America is capitalism on steroids,
Natives kept in casinos and reservations,
Displaced slaves never given reparations,
Take everything from Native Americans,
And wonder why i call it the racist experiment,
Afraid of your melanin, the same as itís ever been,
That aint gonna change with the race of the president,
I see imperialism under your skin tone,
You could call it Christopher Columbus syndrome.

[Chorus 2x]
Is it Obamaís nation? Or an abomination?
Is it Obamaís nation? Or an abomination?
Is it Obamaís nation? Or an abomination?

Doesnít make any difference when they bomb your nation.

Oh say can you see by the dawnís early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilightís last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through perilous fight,
For the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.

[Verse 2]
The worldís entertainer, the worldís devastator,
From Venezuela, to Mesopotamia,
Your cameras lie, cause they have to hide the savage crimes,
Committed on leaders that happen to try and nationalize,
Eating competitions? while the worlds been starving,
Beat up communism with the help of Bin Laden,
Where would your war of terror be without that man,
Every day you create more Nidal Hassanís,
Kill a man from the military, youíre a weirdo,
But kill a wog from the Middle East youíre a hero,
Your country is causing screams that never reach your ear holes,
America inflicted a million Ground Zeroís,
Follow the dollar and swallow your humanity,
Soldierís committing savagery you never even have to see,
Those mad at me, writing emails angrily,
Iím not anti-America, America is anti-me!

[Chorus 2x]
Is it Obamaís nation? Or an abomination?
Is it Obamaís nation? Or an abomination?
Is it Obamaís nation? Or an abomination?

Doesnít make any difference when they bomb your nation.

And the rocketís red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night, that our flag was still there,
Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave,
For the land of the free and the home of the brave,

[Verse 3]

I donít care if him and Cheney are long lost relations,
What matters more is the policies, I lost my patience,
Stop debating bringing race into the conversation,
Occupation and cooperation equals profit making,
Itís over; people wake up from the dream now,
Nobel peace prize, Jay Z on speed-dial,
Itís the substance within, not the colour of your skin,
Are you the puppeteer or the puppet on the string?,
So many believed it was instantly gonnaí change,
There was still Dennis Ross, Brzezinski and Robert Gates,
What happened to Chas freeman? (AIPAC),
What happened to Tristan Anderson?,
Itís a machine that keeps that man breathing,
I have the heart to say what all the other rappers arenít,
Words like Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan,
The wars on, and you morons were all wrong,
I call Obama a bomber cause those are your bombs.
