The Happiest Place On Earth

I want to pledge alligiance to the country where I live
I don't want to be ashamed to be American
But opportunity, no it don't exist
It's the opiate of the populus
We need some harder shit now,
The truth's gettin' around
And each public school is a halfway house
Where huddled masses sober up and up - Enough?
There's not enough to fatten the cows and feed all of us
It's just a rationing of luck
What can't be bought gets raffled off
Oh, God, good God has shed his grace on thee
Your shining sea turned a dirty green from industry off shores of New Jersey
I got a letter from the Army
So I think that I'll enlist
No, I'm not brave or proud of nothin'
I just wanna kill something
Too bad that nowadays you just point and click
Swing low satellite
Hot white chariot
In the computer's blue glare
The bombs burst in the air
There was a city once now nothing is there
Our freedom comes at their expense
It makes sense, does it?
Dollars and cents
They're stretching barbed wire across the picket fence
That is surrounding your housing development
In case you lack the confidence
Oh God, my God give strength to thee
These amber waves, purple majesty
Is nothing but backdrops for Disney
Well look up close
It's superimposed
On a blank blue screen
It is fantasy
Fucking magical
The dreams floats like a chemical
Through each snapped synapse our television past
That is beautiful no more
No more
