Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, patriarchy, white-supremacy, xenophobia, colonialism, imperialism, capitalism... be gone. Here is a new song from the heart, a soundtrack to the changing tide.


(Music & Lyrics: Paul Cargnello)

Pax Americana
Hollywood's a world away
yet it fits in the palm of my hand

Pax Americana
New York's got an interstate
yet that's behind us now

Pax Americana
Washington's a state of mind
that we don't want to know

Pax Americana
the French Quarter's torn apart
the 9th Ward's washed away

You found States of clay
and I thought I heard you say
"Did I play my part well?"
like you couldn't tell
before the curtains fell

Pax Americana
Gettysburg is being fought
each and every day

and you looked the other way
