The land of the free
Under the thumb
Divided and conquered
TV keeps us numb
Coast to coast
A la-la land
From cradle to grave
With our heads in the sand
Nice and easy
A convenience oasis
Screwed with a chainsaw
All smiling faces
Born superheroes
Mega fantastic
Serving the one and only god: plastic

A bang for a buck
An eye for an eye
In the U.S. of A
We just live to die
American dream
A lifeless horror
The western world has no tomorrow
American dream
Yes, no, maybe
American nightmare
Wake up, baby

Imperialism with the best of intentions
Our nation's built on ruthless expansion
Policing the planet in every dimension
Protecting the world by armed intervention
We live to kill and kill to live
The principle is always take never give
When cash in hand is the judge and jury
Things look the best
When the vision is blurry

We stick to the rules
We're polite and PC,
We live and breathe idiosyncrasy
No need to complain
Or kickin' up a fuss
We sold ourselves out
Now the joke's on us
Captain america
Somehow acquitted
Denial, denial
We all know he did it
Innocence, pride
Stabbed in the back
In the home of the brave
Defense equals attack
