Chorus:

We have some tragic news for boys and girls throughout the land

The enemy is on his way and soon you will

Be under his command

Hello, America, do you know me?

I’m the tyrant that you could not overthrow

I’ve been making plans to take you

Get you in my hands and break you

Since you slipped outside my grip so long ago

You tell the world I have no power

You forget the secret bargains that we made

Those who walked this land before you

And the blacks who labored for you

And the poor when they implored you

You abandoned them to me as tribute paid

Chorus:

We have some tragic news for boys and girls throughout the land

Your parents went and sold you into slavery

Please don’t be mad

How could they understand

The life you took for granted was fragile as a dream

One day you’ll all wake up and it will fade away

And all be gone

And it won’t come back

No matter how you scream

[guitar-bass duo]

Our merry chase is almost over

You should know by now there’s no escape from me

Very soon will come the hour

When I have you in my power

When I take away your choices

When I silence all your voices

You will learn my name

I am

Necessity
