Lyrics

When I was a boy I learned the pledge of allegiance
I gave my soul to their god and the country,

But what did I give to me?
What did they give to me?
What did I save for me?

They sold my parents my toys. I believed their ads on the TV
I saw all that I was supposed to,

But what did I really see?
What did they show to me?
What did I choose to see?

Gotta let it go. I?m gonna let it go.

All the things they said turned out to be the best thing for them
They?re makin? money and rakin? it in,

And they?re just laughing at me.
They?re just laughing at me.
I won?t let ?em laugh at me.

Gotta let it go. I?m gonna let it go.
