America (You're Freaking Me Out) Lyrics

The Menzingers – America (You're Freaking Me Out) Lyrics

[Verse 1]
On the lonely end of history
Swingin’ and swayin’ to the murder mystery
Rhyme and reason fled the crime scene
Of new penthouses next to tents in the streets

Oh, how do I steer my early 30’s
Before I shipwreck, before I'm 40
Oh, ain’t it a shame what we choose to ignore
What kind of monsters did our parents vote for?

[Pre-Chorus]
Lately I feel like I’m in puppet Vichy France
Tryin’ to teach the devil how to dance

[Chorus]
To these sing-alongs of siren songs
To ooh’s, to ahh’s
To big applause
With all of my anger I scream and shout
America, I love you but you’re freaking me out
Ooh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-oh-oh-oh

[Verse 2]
Driving through the Bible Belt
Billboards claiming how Jesus felt
Oh, how’d his words confuse themselves?
With cranks for Christians in powerful positions

[Pre-Chorus]
I’ve always felt like all their pomp and circumstance
Is just cover for the devil to dance

[Chorus]
To these sing-alongs of siren songs
To ooh’s to ahh’s
To big applause
With all of my anger I scream and shout
America, I love you but you’re freaking me out

[Bridge]
America, you’re freaking me out
With all my anger I shout
Can’t you recognize truth from clever lies?

[Chorus]
To these sing-alongs of siren songs
To ooh’s to ahh’s
To big applause
With all of my anger I scream and shout
America, I love you but you’re freaking me out

To these sing-alongs of siren songs
To ooh’s to ahh’s
To big applause
With all of my anger I scream and shout
America, I love you but you’re freaking me out
Ooh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-oh-oh-oh
