AMERICAN JESUS    From the album: Recipe For Hate               Written by: Greg Graffin, Mr.Brett

I don't need to be a global citizen
because I'm overwhelmed by my 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 earths 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 the prosperity
it makes us 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 every day
(exercising his authority)
