They tell us there are only two sides to be on
If you are on our side you're right if not you're wrong
But are we innocent paragons of good?
Is our guilt erased by the pain that we've endured?
Endured

Hey look, it's time to pledge allegiance
Oh God I love my dirty Uncle Sam
Our country's marching to the beat now
And we must learn to step in time

Where is the questioning, where is your protest song?
Since when is skepticism unamerican?
Dissents not treason but they talk like it's the same
Those who disagree are afraid to show their face
Their face

Let's break out our old machines now
It sure is good to see them run again
Oh gentlemen start your engines
And we know where we get the oil from

Are you feeling alright now?
Paint myself all red, white, blue
Are you singing let's fight now?
Innocent people die [Incomprehensible]

Show you love your country go out and spend some cash
Red, white, blue hot pants doing it for Uncle Sam
Now flex your muscles show them stronger than the rest
Raise your hands up baby are you sure that we're the best?
The best

We'll come out with our fists raised
The good old boys are back on top again
And if we let them lead us blindly
The past becomes the future once again

Are you feeling alright now?
I paint myself all red, white, blue
Are you singing let's fight now?
Innocent people die [Incomprehensible]

Are you singing let's fight now?
Innocent people die [Incomprehensible]
No one's ever [Incomprehensible]
No one's ever [Incomprehensible]
