2.871 : 9/21/07 : Lie Back and Take It

Oh my beautiful country
no you were never half so pure
as the songs made out
but I think we’ve really
crossed the line now
I think we turned your inner demons out
lie back and take it
feel the liberty call me
a patriot
yell a little if you have to
after all its shocking
to be taken hard by idiots
I know I must be
at least half wrong
but I’m not sure that makes them
half right
I worried and vexed at
the puzzle
I kept on waking you up all night
Lie back and take it
your modesty’s not worth
a loss of our “way of life”
close your eyes
and think of yourself
while we fix you with a knife
