I don't need to be a global citizen
'Cuz I'm not that nationality
I'm a member of a growing populace
We enforced our popularity

Then it seemed to be a fire burning
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
And it makes us walk with confidence
We've got a place to go when we die
And the architect resides right here

We've got the American Jesus
See him on the interstate
We've got the American Jesus
Overwhelming millions everyday

He's the farmer barren fields
The force the army wields
The expressions in the faces
Of the starving children

The power of the man
The fuel that drives the clan
The vengeance and the motive
Of the murderer

He's the preacher on TV
The false sincerity
The form letters that 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

We've got the American Jesus
See him on the interstate
We've got the American Jesus
Exercising his authority

We've got the American Jesus
See him on the interstate
We've got the American Jesus
Overwhelming millions everyday, yeah

One nation under God
One nation under God
One nation under God
One nation under God

One nation under God
One nation under God
One nation under God
One nation under God
