Versuri Alkaline Trio - The American Scream

Album: Alkaline Trio - This Addiction

They tied that yellow ribbon round the oak tree
They’ve worn out all the prayer in their hearts
All along thought they were rooting for the home team
As they’re sent into the game and torn apart

We twist this tourniquet upon a pipeline
Carries all the pain in the world
As we blindly clap and cheer from the sidelines, It’s clear
On a losing streak from the very start

And that’s where they found me
In the cemetery
A smoking gun in my hand now
I’m damned for the land of the free
Sing with me

The American Scream

They took that faded ribbon off the oak tree
The’ve worn out all the hope in their hearts
All along thought I was doing the right thing
Now I’m lying in a pool of my blood

And that’s where she found me
In the cemetery
A smoking gun in my hand now
I’m damned for the land of the free
Sing with me

And that’s where she found me
In the cemetery
A smoking gun in my hand now
I’m damned for the land of the free
Sing with me

The American Scream
The American Scream

And that’s where she found me
In the cemetery
A smoking gun in my hand now
I’m damned for the land of the free
Sing with me

The American Scream
