Track Name: Nau-Zee-auN - America (The Disambiguation of a Nation)
America
The disambiguation of a nation, a land, a people or a government institution?

If we don't define America, how can we say we are for or against it in a meaningful way?

Is America a land?
If so, what land is meant?
The hemisphere, country or the continent?

Is America a people?
If so which ones are meant?
Civilians, citizens, the military or the government?

When some say America, they mean bigots, while others speak of those who's residence pre-dates their ignorance.

Ambiguity is the tool of propaganda.
If you don't support the invasion, you don't support America.
And if you're anti-American, that means you're against the people, who may have friends and family being killed by the American military.

You see the circular logical fallacy, all created by ambiguity with magnetic ribbons and stickers.
Mindless messages of the meaningless

"America Number One"
"Freedom isn't Free"
"Support our troops"
"Love it or leave it"

All made in a sweat shop somewhere else (repeat x 4)

"the point of public relations slogans like 'Support our troops' is that they don't mean anything. They mean as much as whether you support the people in Iowa." -Chomsky

America
The disambiguation of a nation, a land, a people or a government institution?

If we don't define America, how can we say we are for or against it in a meaningful way?

Bush told America,
"they hate us for our freedom"
to justify Iraqi resource acquisition,

because freedom isn't free,
but then, tell me how 'we' pay?
Military interventions or fighting for equality?

But when I say 'we' that's because of this lie that America means 'we' as much as drone death from the sky.

Word play and mind games
Orwellian Newspeek
The language is controlled by ambiguous meanings

After all, who is more similar to the powers that be?
Civilians or those that control the purse strings?

Freedom may not be free but it's
cheaper than private prisons,
cheaper than nuclear weapons
cheaper than poor decisions

fed by mainstream news, selling views to the tunes of advertising dollars, and billionaire programming rules

If America is the land of the free, why do we have more incarcerated than anywhere in history?

"it's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words" x2

America
The disambiguation of a nation, a land, a people or a government institution?

If we don't define America, how can we say we are for or against it in a meaningful way?

"the point of public relations slogans like support our troops is that they don’t mean anything, they mean as much as whether you support the people in Iowa."
"Of course there was an Issue — the issue was do you support our policy but you don’t want people to think about the issue that’s the whole point of good propaganda, you want to create a slogan that nobody is gonna be against and I suppose everybody will be for because nobody knows what it means because it doesn’t mean anything, but it’s crucial value is it diverts your attention from a question that does mean something. Do you support our policy and that’s the one you’re not allowed to talk about."
-Chomsky
