It's the great big nothing
Yet it's always something
I know it's really nothing
But what do you?

When I see you in the supermarket chain
I wonder if there's anything left to your brain
I hope you make your way to the tainted broccoli
Then you'll understand your world is just a dream

It's the great big nothing
Yet it's always something
I know it's really nothing
But what do you?

When the bomb drops, where you gonna run
You voted away your rights, to own a fuckin gun
Now your on a chain gang on the end of one
It's fun, your new life under the sun
The new world order has got a little plan
Their bettering our lives, with a swipe of the hand
Their merging our I.d.'s, now were easier to scan
They keep us safe from terror, good ol' uncle sam

If you ever the chance to be
Out of this place, in another country
You might comprehend, why the u.s. has no friends
In the world, we are, the enemy
As the world burns, we stare at our t.v.'s
Not a worry or a care, were free from disease
Except our little sickness, ego-riffic gluttony
And the masochistic proof, oil brings us to our knees.

It's the great big nothing
Yet it's always something
I know it's really nothing
But what do you?

You entertain your guests, but what you gonna do
When reality sets in, inconvenience comes to you
There's no more power left, and your fridge has no more food
Fossil fuels are shit, that's the economic truth

I hate this fuckin place
Mediocre in it's ways
I'd rather live no more
Than to have my freedom raped
For one more day
It's time to turn the page
Page 1, I load my little gun
Page 2, I point it at you
Page 3, I pull the trigger see
Just another perfect ending, an american story

The story goes on and on
Your slave trade carries on
It's really sad to say, I'm living in this place, this evil u.s.a.
What ever happened to, one nation under god
It seems you had us fooled, you only meant to fraud
All the time, the wool was pulled right over my eyes,
It's the great big nothing, it's time for you to realize
