Americana -

The Glorious whore - spread eagle.

Inviting all takers.

Like a global nymphomaniac.

Multicultural. Multicolored. Multinational porn star.

Spreading disease.

HIV, PCP, Infectious Music.. Name Brand jeans.

Filth and famine.

Taking it in the ass for designer drugs.

Fossil fueled corruption.

One Night stands for war contracts.

Old enemies act in secret romance.

Candy Cane stripes are prison bars.

The stars seen in magazines.

Barflies in hollywood. dream of bigger things.

Mass Produced, plastic people.

Made to fit the mold.

Stand in line. Wait your turn.

Institutions are cold - sterile places.

Faces lack conviction.

Demands to pledge allegience to the flag - fags beg for rights.

Pulpit sermons from Auschwitz color the world in white.

Old warriors battle in concrete jungles.

Snipers with crosshairs of million dollar purses.

Nam never ended. Screams of Flashback terror.

A lost generation.

Leading sheep to slaughter.

Over steep cliffs - the flock follows the sheppard to rocks below.

The message filtered through consorship.

Diluted for the home viewers.

Breathe deep citizens.. Relax.. All is well.
