Who Will Survive in America
Kanye West Lyrics

Us living as we do upside down
And the new word to have is revolution
People don't even want to hear the preacher
Spill or spiel because God's whole card has been thoroughly piqued

And America is now blood and tears instead of milk and honey
The youngsters who were programmed to continue
Fucking up woke up one night digging
Paul Revere and Nat Turner as the good guys
America stripped for bed and we had not all yet closed our eyes
The signs of truth were tattooed across her often entered vagina
We learned to our amazement untold tale of scandal
Two long centuries buried in the musty vault

Hosed down daily with a gagging perfume
America was a bastard, the illegitimate daughter of the mother country
Whose legs were then spread around the world
And a rapist known as freedom, free-doom

Democracy, liberty, and justice were revolutionary code names that preceded
The bubbling bubbling bubbling bubbling bubbling
In the mother country's crotch

What does Webster say about soul?
All I want is a good home and a wife
And a children and some food to feed them every night
After all is said and done build a new route to China if they'll have you

Who will survive in America?
Who will survive in America?
Who will survive in America?
Who will survive in America?

The best part of this song is how easily it flows through Lost in The World

Juan the Reload Guy

That’s because they use to be the same song but Kanye split them

Josh P.

It's called a transition. This is one of my favorite ones in the rap game


If any of you guys didn’t know, fun fact, lost in the world and this song were supposed to be one song, but it got cut in two parts. Probably to prevent leaks
