Miss America Died

Author: Troy
Theme: Political Evil
Miss America died today
Miss America cried
(By the dawn's early light)
Miss America jumped from the tower
and flapped her arms to fly
Tumbling down
(So gallantly streaming)
She mouthed, "I resign
I don't wanna live
as a sick sex symbol
of corporate crime"

"My death is no accident
They planned my demise
A slow murder
their newsies'll spin as a suicide"

Miss America died
Miss America
Missamerica Died
Miss America
Miss America Di___ed

She said, "This land is not your land
this land is not mine
Oh say can't you see
it's the home of the rich
rented out to the blind?"

"Democracy drowned in debt
for perpetual war
Greed made me a cheap Military-Industrial-Political whore
No more, no more!"

Miss America Died
Missamerica Died
Miss America
Miss America Di____ed

Miss America bit the dust
The babe bought the farm
She met her maker
and pray that he gave her more than her just reward

Go cry at her funeral
Shed a few million tears
For the children killed by the bombs
of her Empire of Fear

As my America died

My America
This America Died
(Land That I love)
Miss America
This America Died
Miss America Di____ed

Bye Bye Miss America

God bless America

whose broad smiles and white lies

Why Troy wrote this deep song "Miss America Died" for YOU

I sat in my giant studio at 2am watching the 'axis-of-evil' speech, and my heart broke... The 'Christian' President was lying, and millions of people were going to die again... to extend the power of whoever owned the Land Of The Free, my beloved country.

(At the twilight's last gleaming)

(and the rocket's red glare
... H-Bombs bursting in air)
and lacked the power to fly (off the top of the tower and failed to fly)

(Home of the weak and the land of the (white)?)

When Miss America died
The wrote a note

They blamed the terrorists
and dropped all their bombs

It wasn't a terrorist
it wasn't a trick

The Star Spangled Banner Lyrics
By Francis Scott Key 1814
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
