Various Artists – American Idiot - Green Day lyrics

Don't wanna be an American idiot.
Don't want a nation under the new mania.
Can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind fuck America.

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alienation.
Where everything isn't meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We're not the ones meant to follow.
For that's enough to argue.

Maybe I am the faggot america.
I'm not a part of a redneck agenda.
Now everybody do the propaganda.
And sing along to the age of paranoia.

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alienation.
Where everything isn't meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We're not the ones meant to follow.
For that's enough to argue.

Don't wanna be an American idiot.
Don't want a nation controlled by the media.
Information age of hysteria.
Calling out to idiot America.

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alienation.
Where everything isn't meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We're not the ones meant to follow.
For that's enough to argue.

    These Green Day songs show once again that many people have figured out how to make a name for themselves and a living by ripping the country that has given them everything. These so called musicians have 'created' a product that fits the template of the left wing media who are always more than happy to sell it for them when it agrees with their agenda. When was the last time you heard anything in the media - movies or songs - that spoke about the beauty of America? Can there be any doubt that the American Idiots are Green Day?
