Where culture's defined by the
One least refined and you'll
Be left behind if you
Don't fit in.
It's all distorted in Americana my way.
Well fuck you!

Whoa, whoa, whoa, well my dream has come true.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, my vision has come true.


Verse

Now give me my cable, fast food, four-by's, tats right away.
I want it right now cause my generation don't like to wait.
My future's determined by thieves, thugs and vermin,
It's quite an excursion but it's ok.
Everything's backwards in Americana, my way.
Well fuck you!

It does, actualy, in the intro. I usualy dont bother detuning and just use 5th fret 5th sting instead.
