lyrics

Well you can't watch a picture of a naked lady on the TV
If you're 17
But if she's dressed you can tie her up and blindfold and gag her
And beat her until she screams
On your xbox*

I guess it's just the American way
Land of the free, home of the brave
Free to do some things, some you can't
Just wish we were brave enough to have it make a little more sense

Well if a man loves a man or a woman loves a woman
They can't get married in most states
But as long as yer straight it doesn't matter if you murdered
You can still get married
Behind the prison gates••

I guess it's just the American way
Land of the free, home of the brave
Free to do some things, some you can't
Just wish we were brave enough to have it make a little more sense

Well it's not ok to kill unlesss the government does it
So the best that we can hope to do is rise above it
State's rights, States' wrongs
I hope we get it straight before too long

Well you gotta pay tax in the middle class if you've got a job
But can't create one
But if you're too big to fail or make record profits you can dodge it all
Just put it in the Caymans, or the Bahamas•••

I guess it's just the American way
Land of the free, home of the brave
Free to do some things, some you can't
Just wish we were brave enough to have it make a little more sense
