Artist: Misery Index
Album: Heirs To Thievery
Disseminating myths upon a passive youth*
Lets look back upon, some long-enshrouded truths
Where fables often tell, of tyrannies undone
As good guys all wear white, and wars are always won
Sweep away the dust from books carved so clean,
Glaring, stark omissions, rapacity unseen
What of foul deception?
Treaties gone ignored?
Unjust annexations, and rough-riding hordes?
Heirs to thievery
From Grande to St Lawrence, a nascent power heaved
Monroe Doctrine, Manifest Destiny decreed
Push to the Pacific, across the open see
Eliminate the natives (and leave them a museum!)
Expansion had an engine - the slavery of man
From Cuba to Manila, we solidified our plan
Den of fucking thieves
Heroes, dripping out from texts as Gods
Liars, fueling fables, taught as axioms
