American Jesus
by Bad Religion

I don't need to be a global citizen
Because I'm blessed by nationality
I'm member of a growing populace
We enforce our popularity
There are things that seem to pull us under
And there are things that drag us down
But there's a power and a vital presence
That's lurking all around

We've got the American Jesus
See him on the interstate
We've got the American Jesus
He helped build the president's estate

I feel sorry for the earth's population
'Cause so few live in the U.S.A.
At least the foreigners can copy our morality
They can visit but they cannot stay
Only precious few can garner the prosperity
It makes us walk with renewed confidence
We've got a place to go when we die
And the architect resides right here

We've got the American Jesus
Fostering their shame on faith
We've got the American Jesus
Overwhelming millions every day

He's the farmers barren fields
The force the army wields
The expression in the faces of the starving millions
The power of the man he's the fuel that drives the clan
He's the motive and conscience of the murderer
He's the preacher on t.v., the false sincerity
The form letter that's written by the big computers
The nuclear bombs and the kids with no moms
And I'm fearful that he's inside me

We've got the American Jesus
See him on the interstate
We've got the American Jesus
Exercising his authority

We've got the American Jesus
Fostering their shame on faith
We've got the American Jesus
Overwhelming millions every day, eah

One nation, under god. One nation, under god. One nation, under god.
One nation, under god. One nation, under god. One nation, under god.
One nation, under god. One nation, under god. One nation, under god.
One nation, under god. One nation, under god.

Got in trouble at school for wearing my bad religion shirt. Oh well

Seth Belfort

Ohhhhhhh you're so edgy dude

In the 90s, I wore the "Grey Race" shirt in school and I even got a rebuke for that.

Baba O'Really

It was a lesson learnt. I'll see your school scuffle and raise you; I got framed by the cops for wearing a Scarecrow logo t-shirt, colorscheme black/red/white, they wanted me on record for a trumped up crime labelling me as a white supremacist. Scarecrow worked like a charm, never looked at police the same since.

I used to wear my bad religion shirt on Sunday and called it my Sunday shirt

Wartakles

Wore one as a teacher at school - hope this evens it out..

Lol at all the people in the comments who think this is about religion, it's about American Nationalism.

Not really the same thing as I’m a Trump supporter and a nationalist but I’m not religious.

I’m glad to sicken someone as biased and unintelligent as you, getting triggered over specific points is not a counter-argument. That being said, I looked into it further and it appears Hitler technically wasn’t an atheist, he just wasn’t a Christian and was in fact very much anti-Christian as he viewed it as Jewish legacy. His ideology meanwhile was based on pseudo-scientific interpretations of secular philosophy.

@ganondorfchampin oh and posting a religious website to back up your claims is also a reason no one should take you seriously. youre showing extreme indoctrination and bias. idc if its 3 years old you sicken me.
