Lyrics & Music by Floyd 'Red Crow' Westerman and Curtis
Album: Custer Died For Your Sins
America! – You invite the Red Man
To sit at your table -an' be your guest
To justify – the guilt that you are feeling
And now you tell us that -you like us the best

And the Black Man – is waiting on the sideline
For the chance – to get into your game
To show you that – He's just as good as you are
To prove to you – that He can be the same..

And the triangle – that you have created
Keeps you by yourself – and keeps you paranoid
For the Red, White – and Blue that you keep flying
Or the Red and White – and Black that you avoid
'Cause the Red Man – was here so long before you
While the Black man – was a slave you brought ashore

And the Red Man – was killed to free the frontier
While the Black Man was killed... for sport and nothing more!
And you wonder why – the Red Man won't elect you
You should wonder why – the Black will never be
'Cause you came to this land – because you wanted freedom
But that you have forgotten! -Now that you are free...
