Killradio – Good American lyrics

American Politicians have scarred our good name
There are those too scared to see the terror threat hyperbole
Were not all blood thirsty, ignorant, flag waving government sycophants
See through the lies, in corporate ties
We singing we want a change

And ignoring the Log in our eye, sending thousands off to die
Watch them lose their ass on page 23, then they save their face on your tv

Got to be the good American
Got to be the good American
Questioning what they are selling me
Questioning what they are selling me
Got to be the good American
Got to be the good American
Questioning what they have done to me
What they have done to me

Hell bent on Nation building, Governments run amuck
In the name homeland security, it's the worldwide manifest destiny
International bully, with a disregard for sovereignty
I see health care shutting down but, Baghdad needs a mall downtown
How can we, how can we, how can we..
Well, how can we find the speck in our brothers eye,
When were the ones going blind, going blind, going blind

Got to be the good American
Got to be the good American
Questioning what they are selling me
Questioning what they are selling me
Got to be the good American
Got to be the good American
Questioning what they have done to me
Got to be the good American
Got to be the good American
Questioning what they have done to me
What they have done to me

How can we save anybody else when we can't save ourselves
How can we change anybody else, when we fail to change ourselves.
How can we give away what we don't already have, anyway

I got to be the good American
I don't want to be no President
Got to be the good American
I don't want to be no Patriot
Our darkest fears, our wars alone, our war is here, our wars alone
Now we can't waste, we can't waste our feelings on if they will hate or love us
We will overcome

Got to be the good American
Got to be the good American
I don't want to be no President, No President
