Nation, nation, nation of thieves

Veronica spends all day chasing little lies
Penny's got something for the blues behind her eyes
Eddie don't talk too much, he can barely stand the pain
As the camera flickers on and on with visions of the end

The beautiful and the insane waiting for our lucky number
Start a war, gonna liberate this nation of thieves

We like our angels bleeding for the love and the fall
Manipulate reality to understand it all
New abstract suicide, she gets off on a little blow now
Mind fuck numb TV show we're a nation...

With a spiritual war in suburbia, your Jesus wept
Perpetual stimulation baby these angels never die
The comedown always lasts too long and the well is always running strong
As we pass the time with chemicals and the voices in my mind

And now I see you still walk down these streets like some kind of zombie Jesus
Flashing that big ol' Amerikan hole in your heart
And your prescription's getting low and your cash flow's getting lower
Feed the flesh, kill the mind and sink the heart
Your spirit is just a chemical and your payment is due on the debts that you owe
On the debts that you owe

With a spiritual war in suburbia, your Jesus wept
Perpetual stimulation baby these angels never die
The comedown always lasts too long and the well is always running strong
As we pass the time with chemicals and the voices in my mind
