Like a shot without a warning
Lies a life that's left behind...
And though I try,
It's something I just can't unsee,
It's burned into my mind...

And I wake up in the morning...
News keeps flashing on my eyes...
These dying streets are bruised and beaten,
Riot flags are waving...
Poor and weak, we extend this streak,
These lives we could be saving...
Life is cheap, I sit and weep
'Cuz there's just no mistaking...
This Is Not Utopia!

The roots, the roots...
The roots of America...
The roots, the roots...
The roots of Hysteria...
The roots, the roots...
The rules don't matter anymore...
This Is Not Utopia!

The roots, the roots...
The roots of America...
The roots, the roots...
The roots of Hysteria...
You... and you... and you don't matter anymore...

Better angels of our nature...
Well, they've gone away to hide...
Brutality, I can't unsee,
These pictures are just burned into my mind...

It's commotion in slow motion!
It's humanity denied...
A violent race, punch in the face,
With all this hate, how can we all survive?

And if the change is coming...
What makes it take so long?
And if the change is coming...
Why sing the same old song?
This Is Not Utopia!

The roots, the roots...
The roots of America...
The roots, the roots...
The roots of Hysteria...
The roots, the roots...
The rules don't matter anymore...
This Is Not Utopia!

The roots, the roots...
The roots of America...
The roots, the roots...
The roots of Hysteria...
You... and you... and you don't matter anymore...
This Is Not utopia!
The roots, the roots...
The roots of America...
The roots, the roots...
The roots of Hysteria...
And you... and you... and you don't matter anymore...
(This Is Not Utopia!)

Now how long must we wait...
Until Love conquers Hate,
And heal these hearts?
'Cause it all starts...
Right here...
