Oh say can you see
By the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hail
At the twilight's last gleaming

I'm being watched, I'm being watched
I'm being watched by the CIA
I'm being watched, I'm being watched
I'm being watched by the CIA

They said there's drug dealers selling on my streets
Those fuckers capped me three times in the feet
I've got two slugs embedded in my chest
Two hollow points from the nation's best

I'm being watched, I'm being watched
I'm being watched by the CIA
I'm being watched, I'm being watched
I'm being watched by the CIA

They call me on the phone when I'm home alone
They ask for the Marines but they're just a bunch of whores
They spend their money on hotels just so they can tell
Tell Mr. President that I'm jerking off

I'm being watched, I'm being watched
I'm being watched by the CIA
I'm being watched, I'm being watched
I'm being watched by the CIA

    General CommentHey "Iamtheevenstar", theyre not being completely serious. Obviously theyre referring to the close watch that is being kept over all american citizens. Of course the president has no clue he's jerking off, but the point of this song is to extremify what is happening every day.By making the example more extreme, it creates more of an impact.

    General Commentyes, it's a song. Justin Case was trying to be funny. Some people really are paranoid, but at the same time, it's clear that his point was the invasion of privacy.

    General Commentum i think this dude has a serious mental condition if he thinks the CIA are watching him all the time...most people end up in sanitariums for things like that. even if they are watching him, who gives a fuck...as he says, "tell mr. president that im jerking off". for some reason, i think the CIA has better things to do than watch some punk jerk off. but if thats really how they spend their time, then good for them, its not like they dont jerk off too.
