11. Two Sides

Excuse Me
by Kaboose


Verse 1:
You got nerve to walk with arrogance
Your corporate world is all you got for heritage
You ran from yours so you tried to take mine
I don't get it, were you that confused?
You cut our hair and took our language too
Now you claim 1/16th Native, I say barely
Wow that's great, now your Cherokee
Thatís embarrassing, heresy, no clarity
You want an Indian name, but remain scared of me
Apparently it's trendy, now you want a piece of the pie
So you're a friend to me now
Your favorite time of the year is Columbus Day and Thanksgiving
Thanks for giving us small pox
And making us conform to the ways of your God
Also thank you for the rent money you just lost at the casino
On a hand of blackjack and Keno

Two sides of the story but most see one
The truth is only viewed depending where you come from
All cultures, races, creeds
Two sides of the story in the life of a half breed
Two sides of the story but most see one
The truth is only viewed depending where you come from
All cultures, races, creeds
Two sides of the coin in the life of a half breed

Verse 2:
Your land? Hmm, interesting concept
How much did you pay for it, did you flip it for a profit?
I did, I suggest you get off it
I've got family to protect, futures to invest
Not interested in rebukes and questions
Head back to the rez for free cheese and fried bread
Enjoy them hand outs while I work to get ahead
Per capita sounds nice, I call it welfare
I paid taxes all my life - yours and mine
Worth every traffic light, soldier and senator
Believing things were better before overzealous settlers
Pure insanity, your vanity is too large to measure
Too much fire water got you hot under the collar
Unless you want to fight her father, keep your eyes off his daughter
Your red skin is out of line, stick to your own kind
You got the totem pole, Statue of Liberty is mine
