The Lyrics

It's tomorrow all the things are gone,
I'd believed all my life.
And we have to start again,
with just my knowledge of our strife.

I'd ask my lucky stars,
why am I here today.
I guess the flag stands for freedom,
but they're taking that away.

And I wish that I weren't American,
because we're never truly free.
I'm not disrespecting the men who died
for 'the world's best country'.

And I've the right to stand up
now for all the nations' songs.
And there ain't no doubt that I hate the news.
They just want war because they're confused.

>From the airplane hangers of Florida,
to the hills in Afghanistan.
Across the world they crave revenge,
Sure, we've got Pakistan.

>From across this damaged land,
they are banning songs.
While there's pride in every American heart,
and they all want Laden gone.

And I wish that I were on Mars now,
where at least I would be free.
And I wont allow more men to die,
because it don't make sense to me.

And I'm friends to all peoples,
no matter where they're from.
And there ain't no doubt that it is useless,
please don't ask people to enlist.

And I wish that I weren't American,
because we're never truly free.
I'm not disrespecting the men who died
for 'the world's best country'.

And I've the right to stand up
now for all the nations' songs.
And there ain't no doubt that I hate the news.
They just want war because they're confused.
