Lyrics

Manifest Destiny

Long ago in years gone by when confidence was king
Rapacious robber barons devoured everything
Building up an empire awash in blood and pain
Renouncing good intentions for the goal was only gain

(chorus)
Manifest destiny, claimed as a holy grail
Westward expansion, such a bitter trail
Treaties never mattered, devoid of any trust
Broken dreams were shattered, crumbling in the dust

Broken hearts were buried along side wounded knee
An older culture ravaged by obscene destiny
History moving forward with greater wealth amassed
You tell me that's all history, but has it really passed?

(chorus)
Manifest destiny, claimed as a holy grail
Westward expansion, such a bitter trail
Treaties never mattered, devoid of any trust
Broken dreams were shattered, crumbling in the dust

Today's new robber barons born of greed and so deranged
Hiding in the shadows, their motives haven't changed
Still unashamed to rig the game, citizens beware
Lest all our heartfelt hopes and dreams become our own nightmare

(chorus)
Manifest destiny, claimed as a holy grail
Westward expansion, such a bitter trail
Treaties never mattered, devoid of any trust
Broken dreams were shattered, crumbling in the dust
