"Captain America" as written by Ashley Dwayne Macisaac and Roger William Greenawalt....
Captain Captain America said you gotta be like me
Or you're gonna wind up dead last
At the end of your rope
Flat broke
Down and tired
You sleepy head
Won't you go to bed
Let me run your life
Lies

Clark Kent ran for president
No one knew about the secrets locked in his head
Friends tried to take his life
Accusations flew
Flew like Kryptonite
Clark still looking good
What you gonna say
To make everything alright
Lies

May be right
May be wrong
I'm in the middle anyway
May be right
May be wrong
I'm in the middle anyway
Stuck in the middle anyway

Buckshot shooter
Had a realm of fun
With a smoking gun
Heard around the world
What a War of the Worlds
What a wonderful way to wage
Suicide
Lies!
Pay your fine
Do your time
Let me run your life
Lies

May be right
May be wrong
I'm in the middle anyway
May be right
May be wrong
I'm in the middle anyway
Stuck in the middle anyway
Right in the middle
Dead in the middle anyway

Captive America read I gotta be like you
With a bubble in your bed
Buzzin' your telephone
Like you're not at home
Home on the range
Bread and corn fed
Won't you got to bed
Let me run your life
Lies

May be right
May be wrong
I'm in the middle anyway
May be right
May be wrong
I'm in the middle anyway
May be right
May be wrong
I'm in the middle anyway
May be right
May be wrong
I'm in the middle anyway
Stuck in the middle
Right in the middle
Dead in the middle anyway

    General CommentOne portion of the song seems to suggest that this song is about American foreign policy. However, I can't seem to find the same meaning in the rest of the song.

    Sort of the way America is pushed onto other cultures. "Captain America said 'you gotta be like me or you're gonna wind up dead last' " is the portion I'm referring to.

    Perhaps Rob Derhak is confused in regards to where he stands in this matter when he states "May be right, maybe be wrong, I'm in the middle anyway."

    It's a start.

    General Commentthis song is the fucking coolest. i think it's just about the american government policies & politicians... i could break down every line & verse, but i doubt anyone would actually read it. i might do it later, because i really like piecing songs together, but for now i'll leave it at this.

    General Commenti have an inclination to do just what lin nea said and break it down-
    but i havent the time-all i wanna say is that i hear verse 2 different
    i hear:
    buckshot shooter had a realm (sometimes "barrel") of fun
    with a smoking gun heard round the world
    what a war of the worlds
    what a wonderful way to wage suicide
    lies-pay your fine
    do your time
    let me run your life-lies
