(etc.)

I feel sorry for the earth's population
'cuz 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 our prosperity,
it makes us walk
with renewed confidence,
we've got a place to go when we die
and the architecht resides right here

we've got the american jesus
postering the ...(?)...
we've got the american jesus
overwhelming millions every day

he's the farmer 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 the conscience
of the murderer
he's the preacher on TV,
the false sincerity,
the form letter that's written by
the big computers,
he's the nuclear bombs,
and the kids with no moms
and I'm fearful that 
he's inside me

we've got the american jesus...
