Lyrics

(only in posthumous recordings)

This is the new AM-NERIKA now!
AMNESIA/AMERIKA – Better, somehow
What cannot be fixed by a favor or bribe,
Should be dead or forgotten – it must not survive!

Those dreadful CREATIVES!
Those up-rising NATIVES!
They make us remember; They cause us such grief!
My HOLY DISEASE is the only relief!

I looked into the Bible,
Yes! And so, I'm not liable
for guilt to apply!
Those dreadful CREATIVES have all got to die!

Notes About This Song

Amnerika can be heard many times in a primitive form in Thing-Fish, in the tracks The 'Torchum' Never Stops, That Evil Prince and The White Boy Troubles. The prince's monologue mirrors that of the monologue in Amnerika.
