Brothers and Others

We can pretend that the citizens of The United States are not socialists,
But if we didn't have some of these tendencies, our country wouldn't exist.
If you are working hard for your living, we will treat you as a brother;
All those who lie to and steal from us, we will rightfully treat as "other."

The only way a society bonds is through commonly lived values;
There is no religion or family that we think should be excused.
It is time that we stop adhering to the class system of the English,
And support, for all workers, livings wages; by this we'll be distinguished.

Our politicians are treated as lords in a aristocratic kingdom;
The clergy of churches bow down to what our country has become.
The marriage of religion and government is an Old World perversion
To which all of our citizens should have a strongly held aversion.

We should not care, as Americans, what a neighbor's race or religion;
What we should care about is how our neighbor makes decisions.
Those who care about, not only themselves, but about their community
Are the people that we all welcome as family in the Land of the Free.
