I see the states, across this big nation
I see the laws made in Washington, D.C
I think of the ones I consider my favorites
I think of the people that are working for me

Meaning

The United States government keeps things in order for him. The utopia depicted in this song seems sarcastic and satirical. Who thinks about their favorite laws passed in Congress!?
