Lyrics

Another day in America
"A blessing soul", they say
Sacrifice don't stop at the border
The nightmare at the border was sold as a dream

Everything changed in America
Except nothing changed in America
Wanna tell me what's America
But who do you think built America?

Money, greed
Money, greed

Raices de Latinoamérica (-américa)
Conquistando el mundo llegué hasta la Ibérica (Woh-oh)
Aquí to' somo' iguale' (Iguale'), aunque se vive en histeria
¿Qué tal si nos queremo' como cuando en la feria? (En la feria)

Uno jugaba de niño como en los viejo' tiempo', eh
¿En qué momento todo cambió?
La vida es una palabra y se las lleva el viento (Viento)
Hay que alimentar a la familia

A la doña, a la nena, a mai (Mai)
Me gustan toda' la' cultura', moda Italia o Shanghái (Woh-oh-oh)
Quisiera tumbar la frontera de México a Nigeria (A Nigeria)
Y tener pa' terminar con el hambre y la miseria, cosa seria (Woh-oh, oh-oh, yeh-eh)

Everything changed in America
Except nothing changed in America
Wanna tell me what's America
But who do you think built America?

Everything changed in America
Except nothing changed in America
Wanna tell me what's America
But who do you think built America?

Money, greed, poison in the food
Profit off the prisons and the brainwash in the schools
If you watch the media, that will keep you fooled
As locked to the screens, keep scrolling on your phones

Money, greed, all that we consume
Say "Land of the free", but that land was always stolen
Mass incarceration and the detention centers
Everything that they did to us never made the news

Everything changed in America
Except nothing changed in America
Wanna tell me what's America
But who do you think built America?

Everything changed in America
Except nothing changed in America
Wanna tell me what's America
But who do you think built America?
