Originally released as track 3 of 6 on the "Staying Afloat in Florida" CDEP in 2006.


our nation's built up the nuclear might / equivalent to ten tons of dynamite / for every man, woman, and child / on the whole god-forsaken planet / more americans live in poverty / than have in the last quarter century / but all i hear about on the news / is shit about the fucking avian flu / just the other week i was unlucky enough
to stumble into a room tuned into fox news / they were asking americans how they felt / about the latest national tragedy / it was their quote unquote big story of the day / about some beloved horse who broke his leg / now maybe you disagree with me / but i place more priority on things / like our nation's rekindled romance with imperialism / gossip, rumors, and idle chatter / instead of the things that really matter / our news is a joke and i cannot cope / feeling like the only one who seems to notice / the average ceo of a large american corporation / makes more than 400 times the worker's ration / and people on the other side of the globe / are suffering from our actions but what do you know / if you were to turn on the news today / all you'd fucking hear about is jonbenet / i guess to talk about the little iraqi girls that we've killed recently wouldn't be as safe
