That's my boy
American son
Hope I'm not around when he gets the idea to buy a gun

There's our boy
America's gone
Hope we're not to blame when he gets the idea to kill someone

Have you ever really loved someone?

The flag's been broken
By an enemy
Raised on mtv, raised on you and me

Gone
Yeah it's gone
The land I have known in my youth
Yeah it's gone and it's never coming back

Where's our saviour
Not looking for a sign
Just want something to clean
The blood from my numb and weary mind

    It's kind of like showing how this generation is really screwed up and he's saying that he thinks all the things that have impacted the generation is going to make it violent. And his question about have you really loved someone is like showing his regret of maybe someone he's worried about or telling the audience to be careful and be a good influence. It's really eerie but with such a real truth.
