American Jesus

I don’t need to be a global citizen

Because I’m blessed by nationality

I’m a member of a growing populace

We enforce 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

I feel sorry for the Earth’s population

Because so few live in the USA

At least the foreigners can copy our morality

They can visit but they cannot stay

Only precious few can garner the prosperity

It makes walk with renewed confidence

We’ve got a place to go when we die

And the architect resides right here

We’ve got the American Jesus

Overwhelming millions everyday

He’s the farmer’s barren fields

The force the Army yields

The expressions on the faces of the starving children

The power of the man

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

The nuclear bombs

The kids with no moms

And I’m fearful that he’s inside me

We’ve got the American Jesus

Exercising his authority

We’ve got the American Jesus

Overwhelming Millions everyday

(One Nation under God)
