DESAPARECIDOS

"The Happiest Place On Earth"

I want to pledge allegiance to the country where I live
I don't want to be ashamed to be American
but opportunity no it doesn't exist
it's the opiate of the populace
we need some harder shit now
the truth is getting around
and each public school is a halfway house
where the huddled masses sober up and up enough?
There's not enough to fatten the cows and feed all of us.
Its just a rationing of luck what can't be bought gets raffled off
oh god good god shed greed on thee,
your shining sea turned a dirty green
from the industry off the shores of new jersey
I got a letter from the army so I think that I'll enlist
I'm not brave or proud of nothing I just want to 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 centers
they're stretching barbed wire across the picket fence
that is surrounding your housing development just in case you lack the confidence
oh god my god give strength to thee
these amber waves purple majesty are nothing but backdrops for Disney
well look up close it is superimposed on a blank blue screen
it is fantasy fucking magical the dreams
float like a chemical through each snapped synapse
our television past that is beautiful
no more no more
