I see a man in my nightmare
Oh, we’re running scared
The sky’s full of black, black smoke
And lies ain’t working

The planet Mars hanging red in the sky
Like how it got down to this
The sheets bedding down on the streets
And what it was

Newspapers are filled with wars
And crowd and confusion done for
Blaming me and a you for the business deals that are going wrong
It’s like fog of conufusion
All the more, 10,000 are wrong
Crumbled stop worry

This what you want me for

Said baby, come on
American nightmare
We’re running scared
Got no work
More rent
And no electricity

We’re howling at a war
Everybody said what was this for
Lot of people
Well, some people get rich
I’m kinda dizzy now I’m getting
This American nightmare
Is running scared
And to cap it all off
Some Philadelpia dies

Well
Rocket, rocket USA
All now, we’re getting hell
Gon’ crash
Gon’ die
All across the USA

Ohhhh woooo

Do you wanna get it one more time?
Say yeah
Say yeah
Well, sock it to me
Well

Oh, what you gonna do?
When they come for you
Oh
And they gonna come alright
Knocking on your door in the middle of the night
Try moving up to Hawaii or some shit like that?
It ain’t gonna work
They still gonna get the tape on the mouth
