“The Land Of Liberty”
Words & Music by The Whale
© 2012 Fiat Lux!

Living in a vacuum cleaner with my head shoved up my ass
I’ve got a nasty attitude since they made me cut the grass
This marching through the mundane plane just ain’t my cup of tea
I’m sure glad I’m living in The Land Of Liberty

Where you can steal a trillion dollars, YEAH!
They think that’s mighty fine
You can be a homosexual.
do tricks with your behind, woo?
But you can’t smoke marijuana. .
They say that’s not for me
I’m sure glad I’m living in The Land Of Liberty

Oh – The Land Of Liberty, The Land Of Liberty,
I’m so glad I’m living in The Land Of Liberty
But you can’t smoke marijuana.
No, they say that’s not for me
I’m sure glad I’m living in The Land Of Liberty

Where you can poison all the oceans
and make a pile of cash
Build your self a fortune
on a mountain made of trash
But you can’t clean up the environment.
No! I guess that’s not for me
I’m sure glad I’m living in The Land Of Liberty

Where if you sneak into our country,
we’ll put your kids through school
put your folks on welfare.
Hell, you probably vote here too
But don’t take my social security… No!
I payed that in for me
I’m sure glad I’m living in The Land Of Liberty

Oh –The Land Of Liberty, The Land Of Liberty,
Lots of good men gave their lives to make this country free
But they can’t pledge allegiance.
So I guess it’s up to me
I’m sure glad I’m living in The Land Of Liberty

Where you can say your prayers in a synagogue.
You can say them in a mosque
But if you say ‘em at the public school,
they’re goina through some rocks
And you can’t say the name of Jesus. No !
They say he’s not for me
I’m sure glad I’m living in The Land Of Liberty

Now the moral of this story,
the moral of this song
Is simply that power should never be
where power does not be long
For power is of the people.
and that’s how it should be
I’m still glad I’m living in The Land Of Liberty

Oh –The Land Of Liberty, The Land Of Liberty,
Praise The Lord, I’m living in The Land Of Liberty
But you can’t smoke marijuana. No,
They say that’s not for me
I’m sure am glad I’m living in The Land Of Liberty
The Land Of Liberty,
The Land Of Liber T. H. C. -

God bless America
