  • Am I the only one here tonight
    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, are you 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 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 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 Writer/s: Aaron Lewis, Ira Dean, Jeffrey Steele
