American Screams

Arkells

Band/Artist: Arkells

Album: Rally Cry

Can you face it?
Can you embrace it?
You can't replace - nope
The time you've wasted
This panorama
Portland to Alabama
The ground you're standing
To protect your family

You double down when your back's against the wall
You double down when you hear the dealer call

You've got your good book all wrong
You wanna do God's work?
Its gonna be hard work
You've got your good book all wrong
You wanna do God's work?
Its gonna be hard work

I put my faith in only things that I can see
And trust my eyes aren’t playing tricks on me
Down in the desert, outside the Mandalay
Hoping and praying, didn’t change a thing

You double down when your back's against the wall
You double down when you hear the dealer call

You've got your good book all wrong
You wanna do God's work?
Its gonna be hard work
You've got your good book all wrong
You wanna do God's work?
Its gonna be hard work

You keep repeating that wicked catch phrase
Painted on the interstate
All the billboards, they get me lonely
I can't sleep off all these American screams tonight

You've got your good book all wrong
You wanna do God's work?
Its gonna be hard work
You've got your good book all wrong
You wanna do God's work?
Its gonna be hard work

You wanna do God's work?
Its gonna be hard work
You wanna do God's work?
Its gonna be hard work
