I don't need to be a global citizen,

because I'm blessed by nationality,

I'm a member of a growing populace,

we enforced our popularity

there are things that seem to pull us under 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

Riff x2


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,

it makes us walk

with renewed confidence,

we've got a place to go when we die

and the architecht resides right here

we've got the american jesus

postering the ...(?)...

we've got the american jesus

overwhelming millions every day

he's the farmer barren fields,

the force the army wields,

the expression in the faces

of the starving millions,

the power of the man.

he's the fuel that drives the clan,

he's the motive and the conscience

of the murderer

he's the preacher on TV,

the false sincerity,

the form letter that's 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...
