Gather ‘round and I’ll tell you all
How morality led to our nation’s fall
We became captive to high ideals
Crushed beneath the masses heels

Is this the end of Civility?
An easier life for you and me?
Is this the end of Humanity?
Don’t care for the poor or the suffering?

Eat your food and drink your wine
Open a cashier for every line
The poor walk each day on American streets
Where life is dirty but life is sweet

Is this the end of Civility?
An easier life for you and me?
Is this the end of Humanity?
Don’t care for the poor or the suffering?

(chorus:)
And I just don’t know where to begin
I want to be a Model Citizen:
Evil and justice, my foe is my friend
Somebody teach me to be a real American

They starve as we fill up our plates
they suffer though our moral debates
We’ve done away with the jobs they seek
Life is dirty but life is sweet

Where is the food for their children’s mouths?
Where is the Justice that sorts it all out?
“The land of the Free and the Home of the Brave”
Leaves us with only an image to save!

Is this the end of Civility?
An easier life for you and me?
Is this the end of Humanity?
Don’t care for the poor or the suffering?
(Chorus:)
And I just don't know where to begin
I want to be a Model Citizen
Evil and justice; my foe is my friend...
Somebody teach me to be a real American.....

'Cause I want to be a real American,
....And not care for the poor or the suffering!

(chant)
“The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave
Leaves us with only an image to save”
