Country & Western: Bad music or agitprop?

Am I the only one? Aaron Lewis
Shakin' my head and thinkin' somethin' ain't right?
Is it just me? Am I losin' my mind?
Am I standin' on the edge of the end of time?

Am I the only one—tell me I'm not—
Who thinks they're takin' all the good we got
And turnin' it bad? Hell, I'll be damned
I think I'm turnin' into my old man

Am I the only one willin' to bleed
Or take a bullet for bein' free
Screamin' "What the fuck!" at my TV
For tellin' me? Yeah you're tellin' me
That I'm the only one willin' to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue burnin' on the ground?
Another statue's comin' down in a town near you
Watchin' the threads of Old Glory come undone

Am I the only one not brainwashed
Makin' my way through the land of the lost
Who still gives a shit and worries 'bout his kids
As they try to undo all the things he did?

Am I the only one who can't take no more
Screamin' "If you don't like it there's the fuckin' door!"?
This ain't the freedom we've been fightin' for
It was somethin' more, yeah, it was somethin' more

Am I the only one willin' to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue burnin' on the ground?
Another statue's comin' down in a town near you
Watchin' the threads of Old Glory come undone

I'm not the only one
I can't be the only one

Am I the only one who quits singin' along
Every time they play a Springsteen song?

Am I the only one sittin' here
Still holdin' on, holdin' back my tears
For the ones who paid with the lives they gave?
God bless the U.S.A.

I'm not the only one willin' to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue burnin' on the ground
Another statue comin' down in a town near you
Watchin' the threads of Old Glory come undone

I'm not the only one
I can't be the only one

Now read my opinion on this song.

I don't kick shit very much, so it never occurred to me that there might
be a type of music to do it to.

If mankind minus one were of one opinion, then mankind is no more justified in
silencing the one than the one - if he had the power - would be justified in
silencing mankind. -John Stuart Mill, philosopher and economist (1806-1873)
