America Submit Correct Lyrics

This is the Wild West
All this sex, pain, tears, joy
The universal language, this is music
Are you tuning in?
Are you tuning in?

I'm sharper than a Leica lens
I have real grace, no money to spend, spend, spend, spend, spend
(Spend, spend, spend)
I've been around the world
I know there's music, the united gnosis, oh
(Gnosis, hypnosis)

Oh, in Tokyo, oh, in London town
The same pain, same joy, same sound
Oh, in London town
The same pain, same joy, same sound

America, America, I'm looking for ya everywhere
Are you the same pain, same joy, same sound?
America, America, I'm looking for ya everywhere
Are you the same pain, same joy, same sound?

For all the men who ever died
Tryin' to keep my soul alive
For all the sisters, all the saints
Who freed me from my chains
Music, music, now use it

Oh, in Tokyo, oh, in London town
The same pain, same joy, same sound
Oh, in London town
The same pain, same joy, same sound

America, America, I'm looking for ya everywhere
Are you the same pain, same joy, same sound?
America, America, I'm looking for ya everywhere
Are you the same pain, same joy, same sound?

America, America, I'm looking for ya everywhere
Are you the same pain, same joy, same sound?
America, America, I'm looking for ya everywhere
Are you the same pain, same joy, same sound?

America, America, I'm looking for ya everywhere
Are you the same pain, same joy, same sound?
America, America, I'm looking for ya everywhere
Are you the same pain, same joy, same sound?
