Unit F – American Shutdown lyrics

There's a new wave sweeping America-it's the swelling of national pride!
Are you patriotic? Have you pasted the flag all over your luxury car?
Independent thinking is definitely sinking when opposition is pushed aside.

Fist first!
Into the future!
Head first!
Right from the past!
History is hollow when we swallow everything they say!

Safety in numbers, unity in motion, don't question the national cause,
Dive into the new flagged America, watch your problems all disolve.
You're either for us or against us in the war on terror
-can you feel your pride explode?
But when you want the reasons and ask for the truth
Suddenly you are the enemy's toad!

Fist first!
Into the future!
Head first!
Right from the past!
History is hollow when we swallow everything they say!

So you eat the party line like another Quarter Pounder,
Never questioned or given any thought
In the wake of tragedy we never consider the consequences
Of what we have wrought with history ignored, policies abhorred,
It's the same old American way
Where the xenophobic self righteous patriots tell me
To jump with the lemmings I despise!

Fist first!
Into the future!
Head first!
Right from the past!
History is hollow when we swallow everything they say!

Oh there they go again!
America, love it or leave it!
You are either for us or you're against us!
Yeah? Well who is us?
And what happens if I am against, against us?
I'm getting confused... Someone get me a gun!
