Lyrics

Land of the Free

I hear of a place where the honkeys are plenty and everyone drives a big SUV
Where the steaks grow on bushes and the rivers are honey but no one gets stung by a bee
Where it’s always nice and sunny, there are oceans of money, and if you buy two the third one is free

Chorus: Yeah, I want to see that land of the free where the wheatfields of liberty sway
Want to see the big mall want to play the pinball where the skys are not cloudy all day
But I can’t go outdoors my country’s at war and it seems like it’s always that way

If you can get past the border the food’s made to order and it’s cheap cause the labor’s half free
And there’s nothing to fear in that land over there thanks to Homeland Security
And I’d like to tell you more but there’s a knock on the door and the man wants to speak with me

Chorus: Yeah, I want to see that land of the free where the wheatfields of liberty sway
Want to hang ‘round the mall want shoot the pinball where the skys are not cloudy all day
But I can’t go outdoors my country’s at war and it seems like it’s always that way

I’ve read Dante’s story know about purgatory I’ve thought about Heaven and Hell
And I’ve looked for the former ‘round every dark corner but the night time just swallows me whole
But the day’s fast approaching when the dead start to walking and the body takes leave of the soul

Chorus: And then I want to see that land of the free where the wheatfields of liberty sway
Want to see the big mall want shoot the pinball where the skys are not cloudy all day
But I can’t go outdoors my country’s at war and it seems like it’s always that way
