Abraham Lincoln was a racist who said
"U cannot escape from history"

Like the snow comin' down the mountain
That landed on Wounded Knee
Nobody wants 2 take the weight-

Just like every snowflake in an avalanche...

Like the snow comin' down the mountain
That landed on Wounded Knee
Nobody wants 2 take the weight-
The responsibility
