lyrics

When you gaze across the canyons
you'll know you are home.
In the nation the Crotons founded
where the buffalo used to roam.
Some may call it a barren dessert,
but we call it a clean slate.

Earth's ugly green mistakes erased
irradiated!
This land is your land
but we're still the landlords.

Our soldiers wear the color of gray
to match the eyes of our leader
many lightyears away.

He stands watching over the nations he claimed,
in badges of honor from the planets he's maimed.

Croton Alley!
The flag flies high!
Vapor trails in the sky.

Croton Alley
Croton Alley.
The flag flies high.
Your country keeps you safe,
try to leave and you'll die.

This land is your land human friend,
just keep on your tracking device
and don't be late for your DNA blend.
We'll make a patriot out of you yet.
Doesn't matter how high your shock collar is set.

Always remember that the country you live in
stands for what's right.
We fought bravely for our freedom
to exercise our might.

With plasma cannons
a conquest only takes one night.

Don't ask what you're building,
it's a--community project.
You know, for fun!

Let's say it's a... huge... telescope.
Not some... massive world destroying gun.

Just remember to be proud of your heritage
and sing the anthem when you feel like you're the one
who can stand up to the Croton army (ha!)

One nation united in the palm of the leader's hand.

Croton Alley!
The flag flies high!
Vapor trails in the sky.

Croton Alley
Croton Alley.
The flag flies high.
Your country keeps you safe,
try to leave and you'll die.

This land is your land human scum--I mean chum!
Take pride in your duty,
keep in time with the drum.
We'll make a happy citizen out of you soon.
Would you rather spend another week
with the others on the moon?
