    Lyrics

    I don't need to be a global citizen,
    'Cuz i'm blessed by nationality.
    I'm 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,
    It'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,
    '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 got a place to go when we die,
    And the architect resides right here.

    We've got the American Jesus,
    Bolstering national faith.
    We've got the American Jesus,
    Overwhelming millions every day.

    He's the farmer's barren fields,
    (in god)
    The force the army wields,
    (we trust)
    Expressions on the faces of the starving millions,
    (because he's one of us)
    The power of the man,
    (break down)
    He's the fuel that drives the clan,
    (cave in)
    He's the motive and the conscience of the murderer,
    (we can redeem our sins)
    He's the preacher on T.V. ,
    (strong heart)
    The false sincerity,
    (clear mind)
    The form letter that's written by the big computers,
    (and infinitely kind)
    The nuclear bombs,
    (you lose)
    The kids with no moms,
    (we win)
    And i'm fearful that he's inside me...
    (he is our champion)

    One nation under god...

    We've got the American Jesus
    See him on the interstate
    We've got the American Jesus
    Exercising his authority
    We've got the American Jesus
    Bolstering national faith
    We've got the American Jesus
    Overwhelming millions every day

    One nation, under God...
