Welcome to the front line
Choose your scapegoat
Choose your crime
God blames the Devil
Missouri blames Kansas
The coasts blame the Midwest
Europe blames America
America blames China.
The earth blames the sun.
The sun blames the galaxy
The galaxy blames the universe
But we all know where the real evil lies
It’s all because of Kansas
Barbecue and blues
It’s all because of Kansas
More bad news
It’s all because of Kansas
The Creationism trick
It’s all because of Kansas
And Fred Phelps’s little dick
It’s the stupid fucking farmers and the rich republicans.
It’s the Johnson County house wives and  and their tricked out mini vans
It’s the old white racist farts that could really give shit
While their holed up in their safe rooms sucking ol’ Rush Limbaugh’s tit
It’s all because of Kansas
And their professors’ evil tweets
It’s all because of Kansas
And all that gluten filled wheat
It’s all because if Kansas
Fucking you and fucking me
It’s all because of Kansas
Land of the fucking free
It’s because of Kansas
House bill 2453
It’s all because if Kansas
Ad astra per aspera and bigotry
