I'll wait a little longer
It's not a pressing matter yet
So effort makes you stronger
See if I care when I'm second best

Drown out the childish laughter
Leave all the dying in the street
My fears are compromised in defeat

It's the All-American apathy
I can feel I can feel it trying to get to me
We fell asleep to the war on tv
Now it's get now it's get now it's getting to me

Let's drink the rivers dry
With purple majesty
We'll lock up all the sinners
Then we'll be truely free

In the middle of the night it feels so right
To give it all up without a fight
Justice is blind and so are we

It's the All-American apathy
I can feel I can feel it trying to get to me
We fell asleep to the war on tv
Now it's get now it's get now it's getting to me

I don't care what colours you wear
As long as you look like a star
And I won't shout when my say doesn't count
That's what majorities are for
And I won't mind when I'm doing time
For being exactly who I am
And damned if I cry when we stop wondering why
All the people are the same
It's like we don't even have a name

It's the All-American apathy
I can feel I can feel it trying to get to me
We fell asleep to the war on tv
Now it's get now it's get now it's getting to me
