united states of confusion

Chattanooga this Chattanooga that – 

Boston’s bigger than Cleveland – 

Oregon’s green, New York’s black –  

.

Blue collar jobs gone to China

White collar crime on the rise

Grandma takes pills for Angina

Grandpa watches Fox, can’t eat fries

.

If you grow green you’ll be busted

Except in Colorado and Cali – how’s that?

Houses in the South smell musty

Can’t scrub off the shame of the past

.

This United States of Confusion

Gunshots on city blocks – who’s to blame?

Cops shooting kids shooting heroin

But no way to fix psychic pain.

.

Chattanooga this Chattanooga that – 

Portland’s wetter than Tucson – 

Alaska’s cold, but low tax –

.

Manhattan priced out the artists

Detroit’s a stain on us all

Tech-heads are joining the army

Wall Street bonuses too big to fall

.

Red states won’t socialize with blue ones

Conspiracy theories abound

I had a dream we were dreaming

If we don’t wake up soon we’ll all drown.
