lyrics

Heat up the fryer, cook up some freedom fries
Turn on your TV and digest some more lies
Build walls around the borders, keep the wetbacks away from the intellectuals
Chain up the closet and lock up the homosexuals
No, 9/11 needs no investigation
and this year's Nobel Peace Prize to the Obama administration
This year's Nobel Peace Prize to the Obama administration

We're gonna send the liberals to Guantanamo
Buy more war, let the debt grow
Load up our M-16's, keep our assault rifles clean
Don't you choke, now, join the fight
We're gonna lower the standards for minimum wage
Gonna roll up and smoke the Bill of Rights
Page by page by page by page
Page by page by page by page

Well Mom, all the other kids in school are wearin' hundred dollar Nikes
Don't you want me to be cool, don't you want the other kids to like me?
Cause I wanna be like Kanye West, I wanna be a celebrity
Being poor is so gay, Mom, and so is nonconformity
It's a throwaway culture, no it ain't like it used to be
and I'm just a consumer in a capitalist society
Boo hoo, woe is me

They put profits before people, but why should I care?
I'm at home watching Jersey Shore in my underwear
Well, other people's problems are easily avoided
Easy to forget when you're not the one who's being exploited
But the truth is, my friend, that you are
So wake up the youth, 'cause we've gone to far
Wake up the youth, 'cause we've gone too far
