Shame of the Nation Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You can walk, or you can run
You don't have to be someone
I went on a summer cruise
Upon an ocean born to lose

My brother said that he was dead
I saw his face and shook my head
Do you see where we can't be
We're losing our blood in the sea

'Cause it's the state of the nation
That's holding our salvation
'Cause it's the state of the nation
That's holding our salvation

The state of the nation
Is causing death inflation
Oh, the state of the nation
Is causing death inflation

From my home I traveled far
I drove in my stolen car
When it broke down, I kissed the ground
'Cause I don't kiss when you're around

I don't find that I have been
The portrait of an only son
If that's the case, then who could tell
Where my story had begun?

'Cause it's the state of the nation
That's holding our salvation
'Cause it's the state of the nation
That's holding our salvation

The state of the nation
Is causing death inflation
Oh, the state of the nation
Is causing death inflation

State of the nation
State of the nation
State of the nation
State of the nation

State of the nation
State of the nation
State of the nation
State of the nation

Even now
Even now
Our salvation

Even now, I'm all alone
Behind a wall that's made of stone
I think about where we have been
And all the sights that could be seen

I know it all could be worthwhile
If only I could force a smile
Now we turn our backs to the sea
The shame of a nation we'll never be

'Cause it's the state of the nation
That's holding our salvation
Yes, it's the state of the nation
That's holding our salvation

The state of the nation
Is causing death inflation
Oh, the state of the nation
Is causing death inflation

Our salvation
State of the nation
Our salvation
State of the nation
Our salvation
State of the nation
Our salvation
State of the nation
