Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Couplet 1: Lil Wayne]
Uh, my mind’s filled with mine fields
The ashes fall, the wine spills
The world stops, drops and rolls
It’s Judgment Day or a fire drill?

Yeah, I pour out my heart, have a drink
They say the drunk never lie, they ain’t never lyin’ yeah

My country, 'Tis of Thee
Sweet land of kill ‘em all and let ‘em die


[Refrain 1: Lil Wayne]
God bless Amerika
This so godless Amerika

I heard tomorrow ain’t promised today
The end of time is like a hour away


[Couplet 2: Lil Wayne]
Damn, military minded, lost and can’t find it
The stars on the flag are never shining
Uh, I saw a butterfly in hell today
Will I die or go to jail today?

Cause I live by the sword and die by the sword
Heard police was looking for me, I’mma hide by abroad

Shootin’ stars in my pocket, bitch sit on my rocket
I’m wired off a socket, but still shockin’ ‘em

Everybody wanna tell me what I need
You can play a role in my life but not the lead

If there’s food for thought then I’m guilty of greed
Mama said take what you want – I took heed, yeah

Now let it breathe, yeah...
Back to life, back to reality
Been eating my girl and she’s so sweet, got cavities

Granted we do it for vanity not humanity
But what’s appealing to me is under banana trees, love

I go so hard, I tried to pay homage but I was overcharged
Ain’t that a bitch? I’m just a nut tryna bust a nut in the nut shell

Used to say: "Fuck the police, now I say: "Fuck jail"
Same shit, different air freshener
I don’t play boy, I ain’t Hugh Hefner

Tryna be a step ahead, but a few feet behind
Two fingers to my head, "pop!" Peace of mind
I be in the cloud, cloud number 9
And I just fucked the clock and let it come to time

It’s a cold world, I put on a mink
There’s a chain of commands, I’m the missing link


[Refrain 2: Lil Wayne]
God bless Amerika
This so godless Amerika
I heard tomorrow ain’t promised today
And I’m smoking on them flowers, catch the bouquet


[Outro: Lil Wayne]
Here we live by the sword and die by the sword
The police are looking for me, I’mma hide by abroad
Shootin’ stars in my pocket, bitch sit on my rocket
I’m wired off a socket, but still shockin’
Everybody wanna tell me what I need
You can play a role in my life but not the lead

I saw a butterfly in hell today
Will I die or go to jail today?
