american idiot lyrics – green day

american idiot

don’t wanna be an american idiot.
don’t want a nation under the new media
and can you hear the sound of hysteria?
the subliminal mind f*ck america.

welcome to a new kind of tension.
all across the alien nation.
where everything isn’t meant to be okay.
television dreams of tomorrow.
we’re not the ones who’re meant to follow.
for that’s enough to argue.

well maybe i’m the f*ggot america.
i’m not a part of a redneck agenda.
now everybody do the propaganda.
and sing along to the age of paranoia.

welcome to a new kind of tension.
all across the alien nation.
where everything isn’t meant to be okay.
television dreams of tomorrow.
we’re not the ones who’re meant to follow.
for that’s enough to argue.

don’t want to be an american idiot.
one nation controlled by the media.
information age of hysteria.
it’s calling out to idiot america.

welcome to a new kind of tension.
all across the alien nation.
where everything isn’t meant to be okay.
television dreams of tomorrow.
we’re not the ones who’re meant to follow.
for that’s enough to argue.
