I was in Chico, California,
talking to a foreigner,
when a fascist threatened me
He hoped to threaten to harass,
cause although he could kick my ass
He knew he could never kill what I believe!

The best of the best, the best in the world - THE USA!
Sinking - no drowning in a sea of excess gluttony
As the rest of the world does struggle to keep up the pace
It seems America got it right by doing...
THE REST OF THE WORLD WRONG!

Zero knowledge or understanding,
of U.S. governmental actions,
in the states or overseas
Mystificated history,
quotes spewed from corporate media waves
Turns the public into a herd of sheep

The best of the best, the best in the world - THE USA!
Sinking - no drowning in a sea of excess gluttony
As the rest of the world does struggle to keep up the pace
It seems America got it right by doing...
THE REST OF THE WORLD WRONG!

"Human Rights". "Justice". "Democratic Rule".
"Freedom". "Equality".
All just a total, "FUCK YOU!"
Empty words the president slurs, in every speech
While scheming behind closed doors, with the C.I.A.
To undermine DEMOCRACY!
To undermine AUTONOMY!
To undermine the stability of any leftist populous regime
Making the president a TERRORIST!
Making the U.S.A. a TERRORIST!
U.S. tax dollars fund, terror, terror, terror... TERROR!!!

The best of the best, the best in the world - THE USA!
Sinking - no drowning in a sea of excess gluttony
As the rest of the world does struggle to keep up the pace
It seems America got it right by doing...
It seems America got it right by doing...
IT SEEMS AMERICA MUST HAVE GOTTEN IT RIGHT!

    General CommentTo me, this is about how the "American People" view our country as the best because it's our home. Somehow we can treat other countries like crap and kill innocent lives and our people just love it because their country "is just so great." I love this land, but fuck America. America is just it's name. I love the earth that we live on, I wouldn't mind living on a friggin island with waterfalls and caves. it sounds much better.

    Anyway, the USA needs to help others out instead hurting them for their own benefit.

    General CommentI read these lyrics and I think the word "sarcasm" springs to mind! (Bar possibley the 2nd to last verse).
