Artist/Band: Runrig
Lyrics for Song: Dance Called America
Lyrics for Album: Heartland [1985]



The landlords came

The peasant trials

To sacrifice of men

Through the past and that quite darkly

The presence once again

In the name of capital

Establishment

Improvers, it's a name

The hidden truths

The hidden lies

That once nailed you

To the pain



They did a dance

Called America

They danced it 'round

And waited at the turns

For America

They danced their ladies 'round



To the candles

Of enlightenment

Once lit they say don't burn

To turn the darkest room of suffering

To a greater state of pain

Don't tell me that's behind you now

Don't greet me

Don't meet your dying blind

It's our very last stand together

So let's sever

No regrets



They did a dance

Called America

They danced it 'round

And waited at the turns

For America

They danced their ladies 'round



There were days

That once held confidence

Strength of will and mind

The camouflage that once washed your fathers

Your sons and daughters time



Another tongue

My love, my island

You've gone international

With all the praying men of God

Who stood

And watched it all go on



They did a dance

Called America

They danced it 'round

And waited at the turns

For America

They danced their ladies 'round
