MY OWN COUNTRY
Written by DOUGLAS & TUCKER / Copyright 1995 YUMMY POP TUNES (ASCAP)


THERE'S CROOKS IN THE GOVERNMENT
TAKING YOUR LAST CENT
DON'T ASK WHERE'S THE MONEY'S SPENT
IT'S ALREADY GONE
THEY'VE FUNDED THEIR PLEASURES
BY TAKING YOUR TREASURES
DON'T TELL ME THAT NOTHING IS WRONG


I WANNA START MY OWN COUNTRY
WHERE THE PEOPLE ARE SAFE FROM POLITICAL RAPE
NO NEED TO ESCAPE NOW
I WANNA START MY OWN COUNTRY
WHERE DEMOCRACY'S FLAME BURNS BRIGHTER IN NAME
THAN CONGRESSIONAL GAIN

NOBODY WILL LISTEN TO POVERTY'S STRICKEN
THERE'S FAMINE AND HUNGER JUST TWO WORLDS AWAY
WITH INFANT MORTALITY BEAMED INTO YOUR TV
NOW SEEMS THE PRIME TIME TO SAY

I WANNA START MY OWN COUNTRY
WHERE THE HUNGRY ARE FED
THERE'S NO MORE BLOODSHED
CAUSE NO ONE'S LEFT FOR DEAD NOW
I WANNA START MY OWN COUNTRY
WHERE WE'LL SUFFER NO MORE FROM THE RAVAGE OF WAR
AND OUR FAITH IS RESTORED

THERE MUST BE A TINY ISLAND SOMEWHERE
THAT NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT
THAT'S FREE FROM THE PAIN OF HUMANITY'S STAIN
NO NEGATIVITY OR DOUBT

I WANNA START MY OWN COUNTRY
WHERE THERE'S NO GUILT OR SHAME
ALL PEOPLE THE SAME
SO NO ONE'S TO BLAME NOW
I'M GONNA START MY OWN COUNTRY
CAUSE IT'S EASY TO TELL
HOW FAR THAT WE FELL
CAUSE THIS ONE'S GONE TO HELL
