Why do we choose to walk through life so blind?
Frozen hearts and empty minds.
It's everywhere but we still don't see,
And I blame you and you blame me.
And everyday I slowly lose my mind
And every time I come up empty.
Something else inside me starts to die
And I'm left alone and angry.

It's in the air that we breathe each day,
It's what we call the American Way.
It's in the way that we treat each other,
We segregate and we fight our brothers.

Why are we raised to pledge allegiance
To a flag that rapes and bleeds us,
And we're all free, or so we're told.
A country with a corrupted soul.
And everyday we chase that dream,
With empty eyes and painted smiles
And everyday we wait to die,
Still no one cares and I'm just as guilty.

It's in the air that we breathe each day,
It's what we call the American Way.
It's in the way that we treat each other,
We segregate and we fight our brothers.

I only see what they let me see,
And I only do what they tell me to.

No! Yeah!
Don't see, don't speak, don't feel, don't think.

Compassion is a myth,
The sad truth is ignorance is bliss.
Cut from a heartless mould,
Stand up, let the truth be told.

It's in the air that we breathe each day,
It's what we call the American Way.
It's in the way that we treat each other,
We segregate and we fight our brothers.
