Gruff Rhys
Christopher Columbus
I dream of freedom
See no rhyme
In your reason to resist
Resist the power
By the hour
Ask the people to a**ist
In isolation we were beautiful
Cultured and content
Civilization bought diseases
Now we breathe your devil scent
And just like Christopher Columbus
After 1492
And just like Christopher Columbus
You had a lot to answer fortunately
Me and you are through
Hope over reason
The last bastion
Of division and dissent
Rebuilding bridges
Climb the ridges
Declarations of intent
If we could harness all the firepower
Turn it on itself
We could shine brightly
Phosphorescent
Seize the life upon it's shelf
And just like Christopher Columbus
After 1492
And just like Christopher Columbus
You had a lot to answer fortunately
Me and you are through
And just like Christopher Columbus
After 1492
And just like Christopher Columbus
You had a lot to answer for
And just like Christopher Columbus
After 1492
And just like Christopher Columbus
You had a lot to answer fortunately
Me and you are through
