Shadow - Columbus Lied Lyrics


Columbus was a mighty sailor
He sailed the open seas
He went on to the Caribbean
And he called it the West Indies
He said he found a new world
And he expect me to believe
But how could this world be new
When it’s much older than Adam and Eve?

Columbus lied
Columbus lied
Columbus lied
Columbus lie-lie-lied
He said he discovered
The whole of America
He never tell nobody
How he had to run from Apache
Columbus lied
Columbus lied
Columbus lied so bad
I believe Columbus was mad

The man with his Santa Maria
Was as prim as a man can be
He sailed onto Venezuela
For another discovery
He said he discovered new lands
And he thought that I wouldn’t know
He discovered another Indians
Who discovered the lands before

Columbus lied
Columbus lied
Columbus lied
Columbus lie-lie-lied
He took all the glory
From any discovery
The truth of the story
Those lands were discovered already

Columbus lied
Columbus lied
And if you can center it
You’ll discover the man was lit

Nowadays you enter a strange land
They call you an alien
You have to explain to immigration
What is your intention?
Columbus didn’t have to do that
It just didn’t make no sense
His authority was a cork hat
And his passport was violence

Columbus lied
Columbus lied
Columbus lied
Columbus lie-lie-lied
He fooled everybody
With a whole lot of fantasy
I don’t know why he did it
Maybe he thought the Indians were spirits
Columbus lied
Columbus lied
Columbus lied like hell
I believe his head wasn’t well

You might think I don’t like Columbus
And the truth is that you are right
Though his name will be always famous
For me that man was a blight
He discovered North America
He discovered the West Indies
This is imprisoned our forefathers
And subject them to slavery

Columbus lied
Columbus lied
Columbus lied
Columbus lie-lie-lied
He said he discovered
The whole of America
He never tell nobody
How he had to run from Apache
Columbus lied
Columbus lied
Columbus lied so bad
I believe Columbus was mad

(Columbus lied)
(Columbus lied)
(Columbus lied)
(Columbus lied)
