Lyrics

Pledge Allegiance

I pledge allegiance to the fear
that runs things in America
and to the television for which it stands
one nation hypnotized
distortion, and monotonous repetition for all

I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the blood-stained history of America
and to the corporations for which it stands
one nation under cover
the poor-invisible
silent, incarcerated, and stoned

I pledge allegiance to the flag
Of the school of the Americas
And to the dictators for which it stands
Killing at will across the lands
A planet safe for hypocrisy, oops I mean democracy
Land of the white supremecy
If youíre rich youíre free
With nine millimeter liberty
And forties, blunts and TV
To keep us on our knees
As long as we donít have to see you, you can be what you want to be
As long a we donít have to see you, you can be what you want to be
With fear, incarceration, and oblivion for all

I pledge allegiance to NBC,
CBS, fox news and ABC
And to the blood they make sure we see
Night after night until our eyes bleed
And our hearts become cold with fear
Woody Guthrie called people hope machines
But we are becoming fear machines
We are fear machines
Theyíre making us fear machines
We used to be hope machines
We can still be hope machines
