This song is an expression of frustration and fear I feel sometimes because of my country. And by these interesting/horrifying monstrosities: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wE3fmFTtP9g


No I don't want to be an American anymore
bombs with our flag droppin' down upon ev'ry shore.
if you ever wanna notice
all our money turns to blood.
if you ever wanna notice
it's a comin' like a flood.

No I don't want to be an American anymore
'free' don't mean free when the criminals run the store.
if you ever wanna notice
facists chargin' on the run.
if you ever wanna notice
they beat up punks like us for fun.

and I don't wanna be eaten up by the gnash of radio controlled 'lectric teeth.
am I paranoid or do I see the warning signs of metal montsers huntin' down, running free.

They call, they call, oh they call them
the DARPA Dogs.

No I don't want to be an American anymore
our past is a myth painted over an endless war.
If you ever wanna notice
we sell violent fools our guns
And then we act like we don't know this
whenever they use em.
