Hitchhiker's Blues
1987-02-12

busted glass against bare souls
highway stained fear
beautiful trees by the road
watered by god's tears

well, what do you think of your country
what do you know of liberty
do you get a feeling from a rebel song
what can you say about right and wrong?

snowy frost on barren cotton fields
the sun comes up on a southern plain
freedom riders paved the way
with a little help from doctor king

what do you think of their country
what do you know of liberty
do you get a feeling from a rebel song
what can you say about right and wrong?

a lesson learned is a lesson earned
there's something missing in the schools
obscene 'history' books are breeding
a new generation of fascist fools

what will they think of their country
what will they know of liberty
will they get a feeling from a rebel song
what will they say about right and wrong?

mother's in the shopping mall
daddy's sitting home watching tv
the kids are beating their heads against the wall
and no one hears the baby cry

what do they think of their country
what do they know of liberty
do they get a feeling from a rebel song
what do they say about right and wrong?

proud to be an american
clinging to the suburban way
the i can't be bothered state
who cares about others when you've got it made?

so, what do you think
what do you know
what do you feel
what do you say?

what do you think of your country
what do you know of anarchy
do you get a feeling from a rebel song
what can you say about right and wrong?
