"Hellnation" as written by and D. H. Peligro....
Hellnation's when they teach us
Profiting from greed
Hellnation's what they give us
Coke, heroin & speed

Hellnation's when they tell you
You gotta go clean up your act
You're the one who dragged me here
And now you drag me back

To this Hellnation

Problem is, few care
About the people in despair
If you help no one
You're guilty in the Hellnation

Hellnation's when the president
Asks for four more fucking years
Hellnation's when he gets it
By conning poor people and peers

Hellnation-got no choice
What's the point of trying to vote?
When this country makes war
We all die in the same boat

In this Hellnation


It's the only world we've got
Let's protect it while we can
It's all there is and there ain't no more

Hellnation-asking please
For a nuclear freeze
So the unborn kids
Get their chance to live and breathe

Hellnation asking aid
For the minimum wage
So the kids of tomorrow
Don't wind up slaves to their trade
In the Hellnation

    General CommentA full decade later, every single word is still 100% relevant.

    General CommentGo Jello - I love the style, but the message doesn't read as well when it is so hard to figure out a third of the lyrics.

    General CommentBy the way this song was written by D.H Peligro, NOT Jello... although biafra must have co-wrote it cos it still has that jello edge...

    General Commentbut also, like sublime111 said, this song is saying we have to fix our flaws so we dont repeat history, but also, like like what freehat17 said, its still 100% relevent now, so dosent that mean that history HAS repeated itself, and thatthe last generation has failed to do what this song says??

    General Commentim also suprised at how nobody responded to this, and im also suprised at how this song has NO videos online, or on the music sites, and just about one guitar tab on the internet, even though its one of their best songs.
