Us living as we do upside-down,
And the new words of hell is revolution,
People don't even want to hear the preachers spill or squeal,
Because God's hole card has been thoroughly peaked
And America is now blood and tears instead of milk and honey,
The Youngsters who were programmed to continue fucking up,
Woke up one night digging Paul Revere and Nat Turner as the good guys
America stripped from bed and we have not all yet closed our eyes,

The signs of truth were tattooed across our au-the-ne-tic vagina,
We learned to our amazement the untold tale of scandal,
Two long centuries burried in a rusty vault, hosed down daily with gagging perfume,
America was a bastard the illegitimate daughter of the mother country whose legs were then spread around the world and a rapist known as freedom, freedoom
Democracy, liberty and justice were revolutionary code names, that proceeded the (bubbling x4)
In the mother country's crotch,
What does Webster say about soul?
All I want is a good home and a wife and a children,
And some food to feed them every night.
After all is said and done,
Build a new route to China if they'll have you
Who will survive in America? [x4]
