American Funeral

LYRIC

Give me my freedom
Run from these demons
Please don't give 'em a reason
To spill blood on my sneakers
So I just put my hand up
Then they put me in handcuffs
They just scared 'cause they don't understand us
Try to beat us down when we try to stand up
I didn't even do nothin'

America, the beautiful
America, the murderer
America, the funeral
Oh
America , God bless America

They say they want freedom
But I don't believe 'em
'Cause they'll find any reason
To kill off they own people
If they'd just put they hands up
Wouldn't reach for my handgun
They just scared 'cause they don't understand us
Maybe if they tried pullin' they pants up
Oh
(Make it easier to run)

America, the beautiful
America, the murderer
America, the funeral
Oh
America, God bless America

Give me my freedom, yeah
Oh, baby
Yeah
Just give me my freedom
Oh, unh

America, the beautiful
America, (Oh, say the truth of- ) the murderer
(What's it like living in-)
-America, the funeral
Oh
America, God bless America

America, the beautiful
America, the murderer
America, the funeral
Oh
America, God bless America

About "American Funeral"

Producer Alex Da Kid and singer-songwriter Joseph Angel have teamed up on “American Funeral,” a powerful R&B record that targets police brutality and tensions in the United States, with lyrics like “America, the beautiful/ America, the murderer/ America, the funeral/ God bless America.”

“We’re living in interesting times, and we’re all trying to make sense of those times,“ Alex comments on the song. "Who’s right and who’s wrong? What’s real and what’s fake? It all depends on your perspective. ‘American Funeral’ looks at the world from two points of view that don’t understand one another emotionally. I hope people feel both the fear and the hope. It’s all a part of our story.” (Billboard, Hazel, 2017)
