American Nervousness

by Wolf Blitzer (the band)

lyrics

Goddamn the Coca-Cola® can
My favorite unofficial artificial sacrificial lamb
A straw man

Researchers worked all night
Just to find a way to add an hour to your day
They sing the national anthem
"We just got carried away!"

Are you a victim?
Have you been afflicted with American Nervousness
Its causes and its consequence?

There's supermodels on the subway
Just ladies in waiting, hanging on a lunch date
For the front page or the runway

It's anxiety and ambition, brand recognition on parade
Everything to prove with nothing to say
But hey, it's the American way

Are you a victim?
Have you been afflicted with American Nervousness
Its causes and its consequence?

We threw the baby out, we kept the bathwater
Pursuit of happiness is on back order
Why buy tomorrow what you can't afford today?
Mortgage your real estate, cash out your 401(k)
And if you still can't pay, say
"Hey, we just got carried away!"

Are you a victim?
Have you been afflicted with American Nervousness
Its causes and its consequence?

Are you addicted?
Are you nervous yet?
