Interprative Question

In the Green Day song "American Idiot" do you think the line is spelled:

"Welcome to the new kind of tension all across the alienation"

or

"Welcome to the new kind of tension all across the alien nation."

Both make sense in context and the disk literature itself does not answer the question.

Neither does Google or Wikipedia.

I think an argument could be made either way. But the meaning certainly changes depending on how you spell it.

So, tell me what you think and why.
