I remember loving the best daughter of truth
When you were young truth was all you had
And I loved you for it, yes I did
It made you strong and hard-fired
Like the truest of women
We all hoped how you would lead us
We should have known how you would leave us
With your fortune in one hand and a shackle on the other
You knew you sold yourself too cheap
You swept the good nights from your sleep
You swept the gods of Egypt off their feet
Your firstborn from your heart
And you dreamed and it was misery to wake
From the glory of love to the brothels of Rome
And somehow I knew that you would not be home again
So I looked for you and I brought you truth
But you spurned that cup and
You had two with Cain
And so I will come out to your city walls
When you are kept under siege by God Almighty
And I know you cursed me
But it was you, my love, who lay down under that curse

My mother, my sister, my wayward daughter
My mother, my sister, my wayward daughter
My mother, my sister, my wayward daughter
America, you broke my heart

You said, not tonight will I listen
I said, time will come when you wish you had
