about

Once upon a time, there was a period known as Pax Americana. A few short decades later, there is a pox upon us, and we “honor” it… er… him with this song.

lyrics

POX AMERICANA

Look into his eyes
Windows to the soul
Comes as no surprise
There's just an empty hole

Nasty little Tweets
Spewing out more shit
How much do we have to eat
Until we're sick of it?

POX AMERICANA

Stare into the void
Fall in the abyss
So much to be destroyed
So little shall be missed

Turning up the heat
Fan the flames of fear
Think Germany in '33
And watch it happen here

POX AMERICANA

America, America,
Oh God what have we done?
An angry voice, an awful choice
Our downfall has begun
We're living through this ugly dream
Asleep with open eyes
You will be free if you can see
The truth behind the lies
