Dear Foreign Friend (It Ain't Me) - Hogeye Bill Play mp3

Dear foreign friend
Sorry for not writing for so long
I must admit
Something in America is wrong
I just want to apologize
I wish it could be otherwise
It's something that we both despise
That's been weighing on my mind for oh so long

The rulers here
Act as if they're gods of all the earth
They trifle with
The lives of people in ambitious mirth
Please realize that they aren't me
They are blind but I can see
Their grotesque barbarity
The state oppressors know not what its worth.

It ain't me, foreign friend, it ain't me
I do not now and never did
support the sickening evil that you see on your TV
The rulers are not me
The soldiers are not me
The government's not me
I renounce them, I denounce them
I condemn them through and through
I swear I won't forgive them
for the evil that they do
Dear foreign friend, it ain't me
No, no, no, it ain't me

The ruling caste
Holds itself above the moral plane
The government
Shoots the poor and drops the bombs like rain
I just want to apologize
I wish it could be otherwise
It's something that we both despise
Dear friend I know not how to stop the pain

But it ain't me, foreign friend, it ain't me
I do not now and never did
support the sickening evil that you see on your TV
The rulers are not me
The soldiers are not me
The government's not me
I renounce them, I denounce them
I condemn them through and through
I swear I won't forgive them
for the evil that they do
Dear foreign friend, it ain't me
No, no, no, it ain't me

Sincerely yours
I sign as one disgusted by all them
That glorify
Mass murder as a contest one can win
Please realize that they aren't me
They are blind but I can see
Their grotesque barbarity
I hold that all humanity is kin

So it ain't me, foreign friend, it ain't me
I do not now and never did
support the sickening evil that you see on your TV
The rulers are not me
The soldiers are not me
The government's not me
I renounce them, I denounce them
I condemn them through and through
I swear I won't forgive them
for the evil that they do
Dear foreign friend, it ain't me
No, no, no, it ain't me
