Cling to your god and guns
the banjo’s playing Hot Cross Buns
Bucket seats set to recline
no need to cross the county line
Are the Arabs closing ranks
about to roll some Russian tanks?
Shut the doors and save the kids
lock and load- just like Jesus did.

The United States of Amnesia
make us numb, make it dumb, anesthesia
Cut the cord, close the door, we don’t know ‘ya,
it’s the zen and the art of xenophobia

Let’s keep them separate
melanin just can’t succeed
“Give me liberty... or something.”
It’s better if you just don’t read
Crank your phasers up to “slaughter”
Turn your wine back into water
When you play this song, Al Qaeda wins
and Jesus was American
