"Merica" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....





Looks like america's dropped her load

she was ready to explode

I could not see her from up here

'cause she was lyin' in the road

my head's in the ground

I can't make a sound

my head's in the ground

Looks like america's dropped her load

she tried to call me on the telephone

"eveything is fine now the baby's here!"

she'll have to handle this one on her own

my head's in the ground

I can't make a sound

the priests were all stoned

california was in my mind

and love was a game that we played

my head's in the ground

I can't make a sound

the priests were all stoned

the fact that you moaned

my head's in the ground (repeat)

    General Commentto me, this song is about a very young couple in a relationship and the girl gets pregnant. they get married even though the guy is uncomfortable with it ("the priests were all stoned" because they were encouraging them to get married; but he knows it was a mistake because he doesn't really love her "love was a game that we played"). "california was in my mind" and "my head's in the ground" because he wants to run away from what he's done, while the girl truly loves him and is hoping they will stay together, especially because of the pregnancy ("everything is fine, now the baby's here").

    General Comment...and finally he runs away ---> She'll have to handle this one all on her own

    Now he hides from her and the baby ---> My head's in the ground

    General CommentIt could also be something about him having turned his back on his country, America, which he loved but is now ashamed of.
