lyrics

Pennsylvania Avenue’s resident evil
pontificating daftly he addresses the people
mixing up the words on a teleprompter screen
and undercutting the CDC

Fat-faced fiddling, toilet twiddling, wrong and unrepentant
now we’re drinking disinfectant while the death toll is projected
get me out of here, the Dow is in a free fall
the pitcher’s been hit in the head by the hard ball

American pie in the sky
American pie in the sky
why oh why do you buy
American pie in the sky

When I was young my teacher told me
I could be anything I wanted to be
I didn’t understand then that was lucky
and only because I came from money

O & G and U & D special education
the finest in the nation led me to the realization
that in public school I’d have wound up on the corner
slinging dime bags for a quarter (of)

American pie in the sky
American pie in the sky
why oh why do you buy
American pie in the sky

Piston power, drilling tower, louder coal consumption,
now we’re heating up the oven, wheels of Armageddon chugging
get me out of here, this atmosphere is draining
and still we’re entertaining murder at the dinner table
I guess for Cain I could be able

common fears and common virtues
keep the preacher and the choir away from anyone who argues
Lines in sand in time turn into borders
till you’re not killing a man you’re just following orders

American pie in the sky
American pie in the sky
why oh why do you buy
American pie in the sky
