Desaparecidos – The Happiest Place On Earth lyrics

I want to pledge allegiance to the country where I live
I don't want to be ashamed to be American
But opportunity
No it don't exist
It's the opiate
Of the populace
We need some harder shit now
The truth's getting around
And each public school is a halfway house
Where the huddled masses sober up and up
Enough? There's not enough
To fatten the cows and feed all of us.
It's just a rationing of luck
What can't be bought gets raffled off.
Oh god good god she'd greed on thee,
Your shining sea turned a dirty green
From the industry
Off the shores of New Jersey
I got a letter from the army so I think that I'll enlist
I'm not brave or proud of nothing I just want to kill something
Too bad that nowadays you just point and click
Swing low satellite, hot white chariot
In the computer's blue glare
The bombs burst in the air
There was a city once now nothing's there
Our freedom comes at their expense
It makes sense does it?
Dollars and cents
They're stretching barbed wire across the picket fence
That's surrounding your housing development
In case you lack the confidence
Oh god my god give strength to thee
These amber waves purple majesty is nothing but
Backdrops for Disney
Look up close it's superimposed
On a blank blue screen yea it's fantasy
Fucking magical
The dream floats like a chemical
Through each snapped synapse
Our television past that is beautiful
No more
No more
