"America" as written by and Jim Milner Aron Erlichman....
With the Spread of the virus at the end of six weeks
We go now to breaking news
You know what they really hate about him
28 suicides

They wanna see blood,
They wanna see hate,
Like needle in your vain,
Sickness with no name,
In a world that’s insane,
Was America to blame?
When you’re prayin’ for a change,
To a god with no face!
They wanna see blood,
They wanna see hate,
Like a fucking AK,
Is going up in flames,
In a world that’s insane,
Was America to blame?
When you’re prayin’ for a change,
To a god with no face!

'Cause of I’ve got one religion
And I’ve got one decision it’s a big fuck you!
I keep spitting in your face, every month and every day,
Every time you hear my name my middle finger’s up too.
You think I own you, by ain’t got no room for these hoes,
'Cause they're no good, I ain’t livin’ by your own rules.
You’re gettin’ older, full of liquor you’re blowin’
And you wanna be noticed but you’re dying slowly
So when they point the finger, you flip one back and say fuck that. Fuck that!
So when they point the finger, we flip our backs and say fuck that. Fuck that!

They wanna see blood,
They wanna see hate,
Like needle in your vain,
Sickness with no name,
In a world that’s insane,
Was America to blame?
When you’re prayin’ for a change,
To a god with no face!
They wanna see blood,
They wanna see hate,
Like a fucking AK,
Is going up in flames,
In a world that’s insane,
Was America to blame?
When you’re prayin’ for a change,
To a god with no face!

Eenie-meenie-minie-mo,
Aach one is gonna know when your time is coming soon,
'Cause there ain’t enough of room in this world for us two.
Yeah I hate to break the news,
But I’ll break it in this music to let world know who.
Who you’ve been using, who you’re abusing,
It’s the suits you’ve been fooling but you know that you’re useless.
So he’s acting so ruthless, deep inside you’re just ruined,
'Cause I just keep on moving to show you the truth bitch.
So when they point the finger, you flip one back and say fuck that. Fuck that!
So when they point the finger, we flip our backs and say fuck that. Fuck that!

They wanna see blood,
They wanna see hate,
Like needle in your vain,
Sickness with no name,
In a world that’s insane,
Was America to blame?
When you’re prayin’ for a change,
To a god with no face!
They wanna see blood,
They wanna see hate,
Like a fucking AK,
Is going up in flames,
In a world that’s insane,
Was America to blame?
When you’re prayin’ for a change,
To a god with no face!

Why can’t you die!?
Motherfucker just die!
No more goodbyes!
Just fucking die!

They wanna see blood,
They wanna see hate,
Like needle in your vain,
Sickness with no name,
In a world that’s insane,
Was America to blame?
When you’re prayin’ for a change,
To a god with no face!
They wanna see blood,
They wanna see hate,
Like needle in your vain,
Sickness with no name,
So when they point the finger,
You flip one back and say fuck that. Fuck that!
They wanna see blood,
They wanna see hate,
Like a fucking AK,
Is going up in flames,
So when they point the finger,
We flip our backs and say fuck that. Fuck that!

    General CommentThis is just my opinion. Please note that the comments I make are purely objective. I do not discriminate or show hate to Islam or any other religion.

    The biggest part that sticks out is the part about a "God with no face". The only reference I could thing of is Mohammed, the Islamic prophet. It is against Islam for there to be pictures of Mohammed, because they believe pictures or statues of Mohammed will lead to the worship of idols, in the case of pictures and statues instead of Mohammed himself.

    From that reference, it leads me to believe that the song, in part, is about how the middle east blames the problems of the world on America. A large part of the Middle East absolutely hates America and believes they cause the problems we have today. Iraq, Afghanistan, Egyptian Revolution, Libya overthrow, Syria uprising, etc is blamed on America and "Western Democracy" by the Middle East. "Why's America to blame?" kinda says the song is question why America is blamed for the problems.

    There are also other indirect references to Islam in the song. "They wanna see blood, they wanna see hate" can be related to terrorist, terrorist attacks, etc. which are largely associated with Islam, especially in America (unfortunately). However, in Islam, it is considered honorable to kill non believers in an effort to further the kingdom of Islam, so that can relate to it. Another reference is the AK, which is a popular weapon of choice by Islamic militants in the Middle East, primarily Afghanistan. We've all seen the pictures of Bin Laden with an AK, or photos of the war with a Middle Eastern person carrying an AK. "Who you've been using, and who you're abusing" can be a reference to the dictatorships in the middle east, primarily Libya and Syria because of the large number of civilians killed by government troops, or just how the people in those countries are oppressed in general.

    There are several different meaning the song could be about. It could just be a general thing about how others, not just the middle east, blame America. Again, the above was just an objective point. By no means did I intend to show anger, hate, or single out Islam and its followers.

    General CommentAll of your comments might be true but near those things there might be another meaning and this might be like we need to stand against every bad thing against us, every single thing that we hate even people we hate and when those things start being very harmful for us and the people we hate does something bad to us simply those things and people point a finger at us we just need point our middle finger to them and say FUCK THAT!

    General Comment@Dundane You made some interesting points. I agree that this song seems to reference Afghanistan. However, the name of the song is America, so it has to be about us.
    I always thought it said “Was America to blame” Not “Why is America to blame” Either way, in the 80’s we were in a cold war with USSR. Our CIA supplied AK’s, other weaponry and training to the Taliban. We did this to help them fight our biggest enemy at the time (the USSR). We used that war to finically cripple the USSR without ever having to dirty our own hands with a direct war. This inadvertently put the Taliban in power. “Who you been using?”
    “Who you’re abusing” Abusing Muslims? The entire religion became the scapegoat for 9-11.
    “It's the suit that you're fooling” The majority of Conservative American’s (suits) are deceived by our government and their behind the scenes involvements in international events. “They wanna see blood, They wanna see hate” If the America people hate’s Muslims or Middle Eastern People in general, we won’t question our government if they want to invade or prolong a war with a Muslim Country.
    Afghanistan’s most precious natural resource is opium. “…needle in you vein.” Why are we still there? Could it be the opium? A few weeks ago any new supply was discovered. Then all of a sudden, there’s rioting over some video (Innocence of Muslims) that had been online for months? It doesn’t add up to me.
    “Praying for change, to a god with no face” Change was why many people voted for Obama. Money is the true God of America, and it has no face.
    “You're getting older, Full of liquor you're bloated,…But you're dying so slowly.” America is no longer a new or young nation, most of us are intoxicated or medicated in some way, most of us are fat, the American dream is slowly dying. Furthermore, Muslims are forbidden from liquor, so it has to reference us.
    I’d also like to point out that nowhere in the Quran, is killing a non-Muslim considered honorable. It actually say’s if you kill one person, it’s like you killed all of humanity and if you save one human life it’s like saving all of humanity. The Quran also forbids forcing anyone to convert to Islam. Muslim’s don’t worship Mohammad, and the Quran says he’s only a messenger anyway. Both the Quran and the Bible forbid anyone from making any graven images.

    Song MeaningOkay, yes this song is about america, and all the dumb Bullshit that comes with the state. But there is another piece of information i think you all missed, i believe that this song is also about Charlie Sean. because the guy was raping Deuce's young sister, and he was sick of it so he reported him. The guys in Hollywood undead kicked him out of the group because he "snitched". Deuce made his own group and this song, talking about not just the government, but Hollywood undead and Charlie Sean. I don't hate him for what he did. the guy is sick. If you read the part where it says;


    "Eenie meenie minie moe,
    Each one of us gonna know,
    That your time is coming soon,
    Cause there ain't enough room,
    In this world for us two.

    Yeah, I hate to break the news,
    But I'ma break it in this music,
    To let the world know who,
    Who you've been using,
    Who you're abusing,
    It's the suits you've being fooling.

    But you know that you're useless,
    So he's been acting so ruthless,
    Deep inside you're just ruined,
    Cause I keep on moving here,
    To show you the truth bitch!"

    I think that's directed towards charlie sean. That's my honest opinion. I hope this helped as well.

    General Commentthis is just my thoughts but....... i think the song is about how the government is taking away our freedom of speech and he is saying 'im going to decide what to say and thats fuck you' "You can't tell me what to say, 'cause I've got one religion, And I've got one decision, It's a big fuck you!"
    You think I owe you, But I ain't got no room for these hoes,
    Cause they're no good, I ain't living by your rules. i think this part says that most politicians can be stuck up and think that we couldnt live without them so we should follow thier rules but he is saying im not doing what you want me to.
    So when they point the finger, We'll flip ours back, And say fuck that. FUCK THAT! this part i think is saying that when the government is blaming the american people for stuff that happens and they point the finger at us but we should point our fingers back at them and say fuck that.

    Or it could just be another HU diss. anybody else notice the AMERICA and AMERICAN TRAGEDY simalarities? :)

    General CommentDirect quote from Deuce on this song during an interview "And then you’ve got America, which is kind of like an “I don’t give a fuck,” you know? It’s kind of like a big “fuck you” to whomever - whoever doesn’t like me."
