    you guys are so punk rock!! i too totally agree with multinational companies that want "progress" open borders and a flood of cheap labor to keep the 99% from gaining any money. i also want the 99% disarmed so when the 1% does something so heinous the 99% can't do anything about it. thank you for being punk rock and totally against the establishment ;)

    "New penthouses next to tents in the streets."... Definitely writing about Philadelphia in that line, other places in America aswell. Expensive house with homeless people right up the street from each other. Obesity and starving people live amongst each other. Only in AMERICA.

    On the lonely end of history Swingin' and swayin' to the murder mystery Rhyme and reason fled the crime scene Of new penthouses next to tents in the streets Oh, how do I steer my early 30's Before I shipwreck, before im 40 Oh, ain't it a shame what we choose to ignore What kind of monsters did our parents vote for? Lately I feel like I'm in puppet Vichy France Tryin' to teach the devil how to dance To these sing-alongs of siren songs To ooh's to ahh's To big applause With all of my anger I scream and shout America, I love you but you're freaking me out Ooh-oh-oh-oh Ooh-oh-oh-oh Ooh-oh-oh-oh Ooh-oh-oh-oh Driving through the Bible Belt Billboards claiming how Jesus felt Oh, how'd his words confuse themselves? With cranks for christians in powerful positions I've always felt like all their pomp and circumstance Is just cover for the devil to dance To these sing-alongs of siren songs To ooh's to ahh's To big applause With all of my anger I scream and shout America, I love you but you're freaking me out America, you're freaking me out With all my anger I shout Can't you recognize truth from clever lies? To these sing-alongs of siren songs To ooh's to ahh's To big applause With all of my anger I scream and shout America, I love you but you're freaking me out To these sing-alongs of siren songs To ooh's to ahh's To big applause With all of my anger I scream and shout America, I love you but you're freaking me out . . . Respectfully for anyone and everyone else here’s the lyrics with (hopefully with The Menzingers acceptance) you’re welcome 💖

    @Hitler.was.right ! What? The electoral college legit makes your country less democratic. Everyone's vote should be worth just as much as everyone else, that is just not the case in america, and therefor less democratic. Not to mention the massive amount of money that is flowing in and basically buying senators/congress people to benefit companies against the will of the people. But again, its just stupid to sit here and argue about basic facts. Go check some democracy index studies and you will find that most western European countries are more democratic than america. If you deny this, you've proven yourself very ignorant dude....

    @clara ao melody i cant help you if you see the European race becoming a minority in its own major cities as a good thing. Also our electoral system is not fucked up. Its set up so the states with the most population dont get to vote for the entire country and everyone living elsewhere.

    @Hitler.was.right ! The UK is indeed able to leave the EU at their will, we are just not happy with being taken advantage of. Don't gloss over Brexit with such an overgeneralisation like we're holding anyone hostage. And yes we had terrorist attacks but so does America and America also has a President willing to Risk world peace just to bust a move. And you got school shootings and just shootings in general, were people die you know, not only because of your guns but also because your mental health and general health system because it is fucked and broken. So what the face of European cities have changed? Our retirement system benefit from new workers paying their taxes in Jobs that a lot of Europeans don't want to do anymore. Our demographic crisis has become less effectful through that. Thankfully. And at least we're not so heartless as to let people die and suffer outside our borders, if we are well capable enough to help a lot of them. Also Trump wasn't the candidate with the most votes, Hillary was but because your election system is fucked up Trump won, thanks Gerrymandering! Trump cancelled so many important contracts with other countries that we have a right to worry because it concerns us too.

    Man, the Menzingers. They're so good, the kind of band that makes you want to accost strangers in the street and make them listen to your headphones. Part of me wants to shout from the top of mountains about how good they are, and that they deserve it as they're great guys. ...but, another part of me just wants to hold them close and not let anyone know about them, keep them all for myself like fucking Gollum and his precious... Keep it up you talented bastards.
