The Happiest Place On Earth Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I wanna pledge allegiance to the country where I live
I don't wanna be ashamed to be American
But opportunity, no, it don't exist
It's the opium of the populace

We need some harder shit now
The truth's getting 'round
And each public school is a halfway house

Where huddled masses sober up and up

Enough?
There's not enough to fatten the cows
And feed all of us
It's 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
No, I'm not brave or proud of nothing
I just want to kill something

Too bad that nowadays
You just point and click
Swing lo satellite
Hot white chariot

In the computers blue glare
Bombs burst in the air
There was a city once
Now nothing's there

Our freedom comes at their expense

It makes sense, does it? Dollars and cents
They're stretching barbed wire
Across the picket fence
That's surrounding your housing development

In case you lack the confidence

Oh God, my God, give strength to thee
These amber waves, purple majesty
Is nothing but backdrops for Disney

Look up close
It's superimposed on a blank blue screen
Ya, it's fantasy, fucking magical

The dream floats like a chemical
Through each snapped synapse television past
That is beautiful no more, no more, no more
