"I'm Terrorfied!!!!" as written by and Jeffrey Ernest Rosenstock....
Turn off the TV, it's time to settle down.
And I've been ignoring newspapers, I've been staring at the ground
Because I'm waking up from nightmares, whenever I look around
and see we're stuck here in a situation of which we can't get out.
The dreams I mentioned earlier all involve aeroplanes
Launching missiles and themselves into shiny windowpanes
and the debris from the explosions fall to quick to run away
and today I woke up terrified 'cause reality's the same and I'm singin'

I'm terrorfied!!! I didn't vote for this.
I'm gonna die for shit that ain't my fault.
I'm terrorfied!!! I've overdosed on fear
It turns out one day I'll really explode.

So we'll start a giant deficit, so we'll roll back civil rights
and we'll color code our threat levels so we can see them when it's dark at night.
And our hostile corporate takeover DOES help me sleep alright.
Do you think Bush thanks God for 9/11 so he can feel justified?
Yeah, the dreams I mentioned earlier all involve falling bombs
With me crying in my bed why can't we all just get along.
And with a finger on a button someone's stopping all our wrongs.
Today I woke up terrified because the TV's on and I'm singin'

I'm terrorfied!!! I didn't vote for this.
I'm gonna die for shit that ain't my fault.
I'm terrorfied!!! I've overdosed on fear
I guess I'm gonna explode.

This year in September, I watched gas prices drop a quarter the day after the 10th.
We're no safer and the fear's all we remember
But to honor them it's cheaper to drive to bomb shelters.

I'm terrorfied!!! I didn't vote for this.
I'm gonna die for shit that ain't my fault.
I'm terrorfied!!! I've overdosed on fear
It turns out one day I'll really explode.
