Christ On Parade – The American In Me lyrics

It's the American in me that makes me watch the blood
Running out of the bullethole in his head.
It's the American in me that makes me watch TV
See on the news, listen what the man said.
He said

"Ask not what you can do for your country
What's your country been doing to you
Ask not what you can do for your country
What's your country been doing to your mind?"

It's the American in me says it an honor to die
In a war that's just a politicians lie
It's the American in me that makes me watch TV
See how they burn the SLA
They say

"Ask not what you can do for your country
What's your country been doing to you
Ask not what you can do for your country
What's your country been doing to your mind?"

In the USA!
In the USA!
In the USA!

It's the American in me that makes me watch the blood
Running out of the bullethole in his head.
It's the American in me that never wonders why
Kennedy was murdered by the FBI (said)
