  • The main attraction, distraction
    Got ya number than number than numb
    Empty ya pockets, son, they got you thinkin' that
    What ya need is what they selling
    Make you think that buying is rebelling
    From the theaters to malls on every shore
    The thin line between entertainment and war
    The frontline is everywhere
    There be no shelter here
    Spielberg, the nightmare works so push it far
    Amistad was a whip, the truth was feathered and tarred
    Memories erased, burned and scarred
    Trade in ya history for a VCR

    Cinema, simulated life, ill drama
    Fourth Reich culture, Americana
    Chained to the dream they got you searchin' for
    The thin line between entertainment and war

    There be no shelter here
    (The frontline is everywhere)
    There be no shelter here
    (The frontline is everywhere)
    There be no shelter here
    (The frontline is everywhere)
    There be no shelter here
    (The frontline is everywhere)

    Hospitals not profit full
    The market bulls got pockets full
    To advertise some hip disguise
    View the world from American eyes
    The poor adore, keep fiendin' for more
    The thin line between entertainment and war
    They fix the need, develop the taste
    Buy their products or get laid to waste
    Coca-Cola is back in the veins of Saigon
    And Rambo too, he's got a dope pair of Nikes on
    Godzilla, pure mothafuckin' filler
    To keep ya eyes off the real killer

    Cinema, simulated life, ill drama
    Fourth Reich culture, Americana
    Chained to the dream they got you searchin' for
    The thin line between entertainment and war

    There be no shelter here
    (The frontline is everywhere)
    There be no shelter here
    (The frontline is everywhere)
    There be no shelter here
    (The frontline is everywhere)
    There be no shelter here
    (The frontline is everywhere)

    American eyes, American eyes
    View the world from American eyes
    Bury the past, rob us blind
    And leave nothing behind
    American eyes, American eyes
    View the world from American eyes
    Bury the past, rob us blind
    And leave nothing behind

    Just stare
    Just stare
    Just stare
    Just stare

  • Donald from MississippiThe real moron is the guy that chose to use it for the movie just because it says Godzilla.
  • Andrea from Redondo Beach , CaI conquer on the fact it is about media and what we see on T.V is purely distraction from the truth of what is going on. Look at where our interest lie. Celebrities, that brand new 300 dollar gucci purse? Who cares? Obviously, in our society, we chose to look the other way on important issues, ones that effect us. This what it's about. Hey Spog, I am from ME too! Born and raised.
  • Tristan from Pennsburg, PaWhen you're born with a name like "Spog" I suppose you end up being picked on so much that you don't have time to learn how to write decimals or percentages. It probably also prevents you from reading the Comment Guidelines, which instruct you not to swear or use bad grammar.
    Too bad you live in the US- you probably lower the property values in your area.
  • Eric from San Francisco, CaAndreas, not all americans are morons...most but not all.
  • Andreas from Copenhagen, Denmarkbrilliant song... cant belive it got onto the soundtrack of a big fancy movie.
    although maybe people just dident really notice what the song really means. moron americans prolly just went "ah he said godzilla and killa" so its cool
  • Sam from Seattle, WaThe Reichs are wrong. First Reich is the German Empire, 2nd is the Weimar Republic after World War 1. The 3rd Reich is Nazi Germany
  • Chris from Las Vegas, United StatesAmerican eyes, American eyes....View the world from American eyes
    Bury the past, rob us blind...And leave nothin behind. I love that line in the song they way Zach whispers it
