american lockdown lyrics – adolescents

ten minutes til’ twelve o’clock,
that’s when the hammer drops,
cyanide in the chamber,
until the heartbeat stops,

the last breath (dying breath),
of a dying democracy,
pax americana,
from sea to shining sea,

lockdown, america lockdown,
america lockdown, america…

solution in this land,
sweep it under the rug,
lock him in a cell


lock him in a cage,
strip him of his rights,
one latch a time,

march him up a hill
strip him of his soul
one latch at a time,
