Lyrics

i don't need to be a global citizen
because i'm blessed by nationality
i'm a member of a growing populace
we enforce our popularity
there are things that
seem to pull us under
and there are things
that drag us down
but there's a power
and a vital presence
thats lurking all around
we've got the american Jesus
see him on the interstate
we've got the American jesus
he helped build the
president's estate
i feel sorry
for the earth's population
'cuz so few
live in the u.s.a.
at least the foreigners
can copy our morality
they can visit but they cannot stay
only precious few
can garner the prosperity
it makes us walk
with renewed confidence
we've got a place to go when we die
and the architect resides right here
we've got the American Jesus
overwhelming millions every day
(exercising his authority)
he's the farmers barren fields
the force the army wields
the expression in the faces
of the starving children
the power of man
he's the fuel that drives the clan
he's the motive and the conscience
of the murderer
he's the preacher on t.v.
the false sincerity
the form letter that's written
by the big computers
he's the nuclear bombs
and the kids with no moms
and i'm fearful that
he's inside me
