I was America this morning
driving just to drive
no destination in mind
just spinning my wheels
like I said

I was America this morning
I was America this morning
I was America an overturned truck

mess slowed up the highway
like for a movie
a drive-in movie or a circus sideshow
we all waited for our turn
to gawk four Mexican bodies
laid out like battle casualties
a fireman on one knee
with hands filled with frightened bloody
Mexican face
I rolled by
I rolled by
eating my egg mcmuffin
and I didn't care for those few moments
I let Rome burn
getting fatter and uncaring
I was America.
