Is it nonsense, or is it??? Lots of crazy stuff going on in our country.


[G]This world's more screwed up than you might think
My water isn't safe to drink
[C]this PC world leaves lots to say
[G]and I can't say it anyways
[D]Bush, Obama, [C]Carter, Nixon
[G]Everything in this world needs fixin

The oil we get makes earthquakes now
They're serving us synthetic cows
Our brains are all stored on our phones
My folks are brain dead, live at home
We're having racial mobocracy
It's all nonsense, anyways


Reporters don't report no more
We don't know what were fighting for
The sun is gonna fry our skin
And ISIS is gonna do us in
Some kids can't read and most can't spell
It's all nonsense, that I can tell

We all get disability
There's immigration insanity
We need to pay our Federal debt
I'm getting shot at, ain't dead yet
Most everyone don't even care
It's all nonsense, everywhere
[D]Please, please, [C]please, Lordie help [G]me
I'm thrown my money in the wishing well
this country isn't working like it should be
and the pastor says I'm goin to hell
