lyrics

I don't know if I've ever driven down this road before
Oh I just can't be sure
Because it looks exactly like all the other damn roads

They're all named after American tribes
All the residents are white and they constantly fail to see the irony in that
You know they're taking every chance they get to ignore the fact

That their ancestors probably weren't so kind
To the people and land who belong to that tribe
How could they foresee it perpetuating
Harmful stereotypes and appropriating

The cultures that the natives have worked so hard to preserve
So for once can we give them the peace and respect they deserve

So Tualatin you've named your roads and your parks all wrong
If someone really wants a tour that represents our city just meet me on

The corner of right wing avenue and I'm better at sports than you
Street is not a way you are just a place to drive your parents car
While the Sioux are on the frontline protecting their water getting beaten and pepper sprayed when I heard someone living on Sioux court say

“Happy holidays? Are you fucking kidding me?
It's merry Christmas haven't you ever heard of
good ol’ fashioned white supremacy?”
