    Lyrics

    Once the religious, the hunted and weary
    Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
    Came to this country to build a new vision
    Far from the reaches of Kingdom and pope

    Like good Christians some would burn the witches
    Later some got slaves to gather riches

    But still from near and far to seek America
    They came by thousands, to court the wild
    But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
    To be their spirit and guiding light

    And once the ties with the crown had been broken
    Westward in saddle and wagon it went
    And till the railroad linked ocean to ocean
    Many the lives which had come to an end

    While we bullied, stole and bought a homeland
    We began the slaughter of the red man

    But still from near and far to seek America
    They came by thousands to court the wild
    But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
    To be their spirit and guiding light

    The Blue and Grey they stomped it
    They kicked it just like a dog
    And when the war was over
    They stuffed it just like a hog

    And though the past has its share of injustice
    Kind was the spirit in many a way
    But its protectors and friends have been sleeping
    Now it's a monster and will not obey

    The spirit was freedom and justice
    And its keepers seemed generous and kind
    Its leaders were supposed to serve the country
    But now they won't pay it no mind
    Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
    Now their vote is a meaningless joke
    They babble about law and order
    But it's all just an echo of what they've been told

    Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
    It's got our heads into the noose
    And it just sits there watchin'

    The cities have turned into jungles
    And corruption is stranglin' the land
    The police force is watching the people
    And the people just can't understand
    We don't know how to mind our own business
    'Cause the whole world's got to be just like us
    Now we are fighting a war over there
    No matter who's the winner we can't pay the cost

    'Cause there's a monster on the loose
    It's got our heads into the noose
    And it just sits there watchin'

    America, where are you now
    Don't you care about your sons and daughters
    Don't you know we need you now
    We can't fight alone against the monster

    America, where are you now
    Don't you care about your sons and daughters
    Don't you know we need you now
    We can't fight alone against the monster

    America...America...America...America...
