American Jesus

(Greg Graffin, Mr. Brett)

I don't need to be a global citizen,
because I'm blessed by nationality,
I'm a member of a growing populace,
we enforced 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
that's 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 our 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 farmer barren fields, (in god)
the force the army wields, (we trust)
the expression in the faces (because he's one of us)
of the starving children,
the power of the man (break down)
he's the fuel that drives the clan, (cave in)
he's the motive and the conscience (we can redeem your sins)
of the murderer
he's the preacher on TV, (strong heart)
the false sincerity, (clear mind)
the form letters that written by (and infinetly kind)
the big computers,
he's the nuclear bombs, (you lose)
and the kids with no moms (we win)
and I'm fearful that (he is our champion)
he's inside me
