lyrics

It's Christmas day here in Pleasantville
Anywhere USA
White picket fences Orwellian double speak references
A redefined reality confusing me
Now surely there's a disconnect
I don't know you and you don't know me
A Politically incorrect fatality

Burton would have his day in the sun
Oddly enough Johnny wouldn't be the one
This is a role for an American
With a white trash perspective
And permit for a gun

Welcome to Pleasantville
Population one more
Than anybody ever needed
Welcome to my town
Pleasantville America
I can't imagine ever leaving

(Bop Bop ooh wee)

Welcome to Pleasantville
Population one more
Than anybody ever needed
Welcome to my town
Pleasantville America
You sure could use a cleaning

Everyday is the same just another sunny day
Perfectly the Pleasantville way
Streets are paved with hopes and dreams
Never any signs of unpopular urban decay
I got a feeling thing's will be different today
Different in the same ole way
Pleasantville put on your faces we've got company
Wait for it..smiles everybody

Steven came and went we'll never see him again
He left his whitewashed world behind for you
Pleasantville America where everything is banned
Including micro aggression or being individual

(Repeat first chorus)

Welcome to Pleasantville
We do a sanitized version
Of the Pledge of Allegiance
Welcome to your town
Pleasantville America
Now open late for your convenience
