I have composed a country song that is an answer to “American Idiot” by Gree Day. Here’s the lyrics...

Deer In The Headlights

Well, everything I know about the world is what I saw on TV
And the sad part is I already knew they’re lying to me
They say those that don’t study history
Are doomed to repeat it, but don’t blame me
Cause they quit teachin history round about ‘63

Now, they got me feelin like a Deer in the Headlights
Wide eyed, dumbfounded, staring at the bright lights
Just tell me anything I’ll believe it, all right
Lord, have mercy, I’m a Deer in the Headlights

Well, everything I know about America is all BS
Since they took over the schools and the tube and the IRS
So I’m screaming for the state to come fix my life
Put food on my table, take care o’ my wife
She’s frettin like a fawn over who’s gonna fix this mess?

And they got me feelin like a Deer in the Headlights
Wide eyed, dumbfounded, staring at the bright lights
Say the earth is warmin I’ll believe it, all right
Lord, have mercy, I’m a Deer in the Headlights

Well I’m starin straight ahead
just tryin to get across and graze
Should’a listened when my momma said
Little buck, you gotta look both ways…

Well, everything they tell me ‘bout myself makes me so contrite
Turns out that I’m a kook fringe crazy and I’m wound too tight
Who’d a thought I was the hatin’ kind
Be careful what you say ‘cause somebody’s gonna mind
Lord, save me from myself, guess I just don’t know wrong from right

So, they got me feelin like a Deer in the Headlights
Wide eyed, dumbfounded, staring at the bright lights
Say the world hates us I’ll believe it, all right
Lord, have mercy, I’m a Deer in the Headlights
