about

By Ezra / Thomas a live recording probably from the late 90's, like maybe 99 or maybe even in early 2000 ...that I don't remember too much about. But I think it was written more like 96-97

lyrics

I'm out of touch
I'm off the scene
I need some liberal to come and educate me
ya to free my mind
so the rest will follow
down this crooked line
in this empty shadow

I live in excess
I can deal with the stress
with my TV and my IBMPC

'Cause I'm American
Ya I'm American
I don't know what I am
but I'm American

Oh Sodomia and his friends
Their out teach'n a boy how to be a man
While I pass the needle
on the street
I like to keep it clean
I like to keep it so neat

'Cause I'm American
Ya I'm American
I don't know what I am
but I'm American
I am

So I'll clear my mind
of it's moral state
Cause there ain't nothing we can't negotiate
I'll put a shine
on my outside shell
I'll be the best-looking one
down in the fires of hell

'Cause I'm American
Ya I'm American
I don't know what I am
but I'm American
I'm American
I'm am American
I am

I like to separate
my church from state
One nation under God
But who is he anyway

I tolerate
what I can not hate
If I just say no,
maybe it will go away

'Cause I'm American
Ya I'm American
I don't know what I am
but I'm American
I Am

But I'm live'n straight
I got no disease
I'm walking 2 miles a day
so I can fit in my jeans

You know
I spend my time
out saving the trees
I built my house of recyc-a-bilities

While 10,000 babies
lay in a trash can
choking on a choice
but that's all that I am

I'm American
Ya I'm American
I don't know what I am
but I'm American
I'm American
I'm am American
I don't know what I am

Am your big pollution?
am I your sexual revolution?
Am I your disease?
Maybe your only solutions

neither black or white
neither day or night
I'm just blown with the wind
Original sin, I am American

I'm American
Ya I'm American
I don't know what I am
but I'm American
I'm American
I'm am American
I don't know what I am
