The Offspring - This Is Not Utopia Lyrics


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
And riot flags are waving
Poor and weak, we extend this streak
These lives we could be saving
Life is cheap I sit and weep ’cause 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

The 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 a change is coming
What makes it take so long?
And if a 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 not utopia)

So now how long must we wait?
Until love conquers hate?
And heal these hearts
‘Cause it all starts
Right here
