lyrics

America screaming our name has
Reached across the furthest seas
And landed beyond where ambassadors
Could reach

America we haven't spoken
Since Uncle Allen still had a phone
I have missed his voice since he went out
On the final road

America you want to be famous
You want to buy the hidden keys
You want the easy way to the top of
The heap

America were interconnected
Beyond our shirt tags and our trash
Floating islands of
Transnational garbage

America our kitschy knick-knacks
Are in the stomachs of our birds
Or sold as rare antiques to
Minivan escorts

America we worship the wealthy
But you can't love the things you own
In the time between superfluities
You just feel so alone

America you are still beautiful
Your debts, your warts and all
I love you
For shore to shore to shore to shore to shore

To shore, too sure


Allen:
(America I've given you all and now I'm nothing)
(I have mystical visions and cosmic vibrations)
(Business men are serious, movie producers are serious, everyone's serious but me)
(I can't stand my own mind)
(It occurs to me that I am America, I am talking to myself again)
(America I've given you all and now I'm nothing)
(I can't stand my own mind)
(When can I go into the supermarket and buy what I need with my good looks)
(America this is the impression I get from looking at the television set, America is this correct?)
(America after all it is You and I who are perfect, not the next world)
(I've given you all and now I'm nothing)
(Business men are serious, movie producers are serious, everyone's serious but me)
(It occurs to me that I am America, I am talking to myself again)
