Lyrics[edit]

    I am overground and Out-selling IT.
    Since God thinks I don't exist The Beatings happen Per Minute
    This is not Blue-collar-white-corrective-politics
    I'm on a HATE AMERICAN STYLE
    Kick.
    
    This is the black collar song
    Put it in your middle finger and sing along
    Use your fist and not your mouth
    (Come on, come on)
    This is the black collar song
    Put it in your middle finger and sing along
    Use your fist and not your mouth
    (Come on, come on)
    
    I'm on a campaign for pain
    And when I get elected
    I'll wipe the white off your house
    The smile off your face
    
    This is the black collar song
    Put it in your middle finger and sing along
    Use your fist and not your mouth
    (Come on, come on)
    This is the black collar song
    Put it in your middle finger and sing along
    Use your fist and not your mouth
    (Come on, come on)
    I woke up today and wished for tomorrow
    I don't want to be like anyone else
    I woke up today and wished for tomorrow
    I don't want to even be myself
    
    I said, no, this isn't your song
    We can't all get along
    It's too hard to hold hands when
    Your hand's a fist
    My hate-pop won't ever stop
    I'm fucking glad we're different
    This is my HATE AMERICAN STYLE
    Hit.
    
    Don't bring, don't sing it
    Use your fist and not your mouth.
    
    This is the black collar song
    Put it in your middle finger and sing along
    Use your fist and not your mouth
    (Come on, come on)
    This is the black collar song
    Put it in your middle finger and sing along
    Use your fist and not your mouth
    (Come on, come on)
    I woke up today and wished for tomorrow
    I don't want to be like anyone else
    I woke up today and wished for tomorrow
    I don't want to even be myself
