|Don't want to be an American idiot Don't want a nation under the new mania And can you hear the sound of hysteria? The subliminal mind fuck...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
There's no economics, no race, hardly any compassion. Joe name-checks America as if his hometown of Berkeley was in the middle of it, then name-checks Jesus as if he's never met anyone who's attended church. And to lend his maunderings rock grandeur, he ties them together with devices that sunk under their own weight back when the Who invented them.
