Lyrics[edit]

    They wanna sell it out
    Buy it up
    Dumb it down
    A good god is hard to find
    I'll join the crowd
    That wants to see me dead
    Right now I feel I belong for the first time
    
    Multiply your death
    Divide by sex
    Add up the violence and what do you get?
    
    We are all just stars and we're waiting
    We are all just scarred and we're hating
    We are all just stars on your burning flag
    
    You point the gun at me
    And hope it'll go away
    If god was alive
    He would hate you anyway
    
    My right wing is flapping
    My left one is gray
    Let's hear it for the kids but
    Nothing they say
    They gyrate and g-rate on election day
    We got our ABC and our F-U-C-K
    F-U-C-K
    F-U-C-K
    
    Multiply your death
    Divide by sex
    Add up the violence and what do you get?
    
    We are all just stars and we're waiting
    We are all just scarred and we're hating
    We are all just stars on your burning flag
    
    You point the gun at me
    And hope it'll go away
    If god was alive
    He would hate you anyway
    
    We are all just stars and we're waiting
    We are all just scarred and we're hating
    We are all just stars on your burning flag
    
    Stars on your burning flag
