"My Own Country" as written by and Peter Warlock....
Fools run the government sick foreign policy
Their words sound valiant but their hands are green
Unending quest for power
Taxes that make us slaves
Don't believe a word of it ignore the fucked up things they say
I'm gonna make it on my own
Dictator on a throne
Make my own philosophy U.S. of me
A citizen who's really pissed United Anarchists
Give me death or liberty I am my own country
United States Confederate of me
Old whigs in parliament play bedroom politics
Salacious stories make them look obscene
Spin on your nemesis fill up the news today
Don't believe a word of it not all the fucked up things they say
It's ail me no secret police

    General CommentIt is about individualism. Believes that the government has too much power over individual freedom, and more free rights should be given to people.

    General CommentYeah, you can't call Pennywise just cause they've attacked Bush in the past few years. Originally, they heavily criticsized the religious right, but with Straight Ahead and Land of the Free? attacks liberals too. Just remember, most of these punk bands that are anti Republican began in the 90's, attacking the government, with a Democrat in charge.
