lyrics

They come across the border to try and find some order
Just a break from chaos and a job
But all they ever found on American ground
Were the threats of an angry mob

A national disgrace it was a national disgrace
And the world held it's breath and held our hand
People losing faith so many losing faith
In a nation they no longer understand

All for one, one for all

They shake their fists in anger at the child of a total stranger
And talk about their nation made of laws
And the thing that makes it sad as it all goes bad
They've forgotten their own higher cause

So we listen to the raving of a madman and a fraud
Who thinks that he can take us for a ride
And when it come to justice all we say is "trust us"
Then we turn you back again and watch you die.

All for one, one for all
