No matter where I go, your always there
cause no matter where I sit man, I sit in fear
A Marshall law has taken effect,
They stole the right to be defiant, while we’re turning our heads.
The informed citizen became un-American,
for reading a book instead of watching the television.
Supporting peace and not the president.
Rather die on the cross than for this fucking republican.
Speaks about sacrifice, National honor,
Take one for the team, man just do what you’re ordered.
Well I won’t go out like that. Don’t care what you say.
Bet that ass would think different if you're at the draft age.

A.M.E.R.I.K.A. (Watching You)
A.M.E.R.I.K.A. (Cause you’re watching Me)
A.M.E.R.I.K.A. (Watching You)
A.M.E.R.I.K.A. (Best start watching Me)

The simple fact remains, that it’s more than just me.
There’s a whole generation taking over the streets.
Ready to smash back the system that made our lives useless.
Masses think you’re Jesus, but we know that you’re Judas.
Slaving us out, hate all the bosses.
Put in all the work, but you make all the profits.
No more bullshit talk, reform is just retarded,
Start a revolution, get the party started.

A.M.E.R.I.K.A. (Watching You)
A.M.E.R.I.K.A. (Cause you’re watching Me)
A.M.E.R.I.K.A. (Watching You)
A.M.E.R.I.K.A. (Watching you watch me)
A.M.E.R.I.K.A. , A.M.E.R.I.K.A. , A.M.E.R.I.K.A. , A.M.E.R.I.K.A.

    General CommentThis is the first song on the album and it makes such an impact.

    I love so many of the lines in this song.
    "Bet that ass would think different if you're at the draft age"
    "Best start watching Me"
    "Ready to smash back the system that made our lives useless"
    "No more bullshit talk, reform is just retarded,
    Start a revolution, get the party started. "

    But my above all my favorite is
    "The informed citizen became un-American,
    for reading a book instead of watching the television."

    This song just makes so much sense with all the crap about the war and bickering about the election that never goes away. I love it.
