Sufjan Stevens – America lyrics

Is it love you’re after?
A sign of the flood or one more disaster?
Don’t do to me what you did to America
Don’t do to me what you did to America

I have loved you, I have grieved
I am ashamed to admit I no longer believe
I have loved you, I received
I have traded my life for a picture of the scenery

Don’t do to me what you did to America
Don’t do to me what you did to America

I give it all up in laughter
The sign of the cross awaiting disaster
A dove flew to me like a vision of paranoia
Dove flew to me like a vision of paranoia

I have loved you (I have loved you)
Like a dream (like a dream)
I have kissed your lips like a Judas in heat
I have worshiped (I have worshiped)
I believed (I believed)
I have broke your bread for a splendor of machinery

Don’t look at me like I’m acting hysterical
Don’t look at me like I’m acting hysterical

I have worshiped (I have worshiped)
I have cried (I have cried)
I have put my hands in the wounds on your side
I have tasted of your blood
I have choked on the waters
I abated the flood

I am broken (I am broken)
I am beat (I am beat)
But I will find my way like a Judas in heat
I am fortune (I am fortune)
I am free (I am free)
I’m like a fever of light in the land of opportunity

Don’t do to me what you did to America
(Don’t do to me what you do to yourself)
Don’t do to me what you did to America
(Don’t do to me what you do to yourself)
Don’t do to me what you did to America
(Don’t do to me what you do to yourself)
Don’t do to me what you did to America
(Don’t do to me what you do to yourself)

[Instrumental]

Don’t do to me what you did to America
Don’t do to me what you did to America
Don’t do to me what you did to America
Don’t do to me what you did to America

Don’t do to me what you did to America
Don’t do to me what you did to America
Don’t do to me what you did to America
Don’t do to me what you did to America
