Back In The USA lyrics

[Verse 1]
I woke up to a bitter storm (bitter year)
And Noah's Ark came washed up on the shore
The riot gear has lined the dawn (bitter year)
Like dogs that sh*t on your neighbor's lawn

[Pre-Chorus]
Let freedom ring with all the crazies on parade
Let them eat poison and it tastes like lemonade

[Chorus]
Back in the USA for a small town serenade
With fireworks on display
Tonight, it's a hero's welcome home
And there's no place else to go
And I'm takin' it to the grave
Back in the USA

[Verse 2]
The saddest story ever told (bitter year)
Is feeling safe in our suburban homes
Like soldiers of an endless war (bitter year)
And every church can have a liquor store

[Pre-Chorus]
Let freedom ring with all the crazies on parade
Let them eat poison and it tastes like lemonade

[Chorus]
Back in the USA for a small town serenade
With fireworks on display
Tonight, it's a hero's welcome home
And there's no place else to go
And I'm takin' it to the grave
Back in the USA
