A while back I came across some notes that Bap wrote before he released Howl On. You can read here his notes on the album as a whole, and what inspired it (clue : America, Glastonbury, Woodstock, Men on the Moon, Howl On & Cosmic Coincidence!)
But he also wrote a few lines about each song individually, so here's what Bap wrote about America (Track 1):
On the night of July 20th 1969, I tried to stay awake for the first Moonwalk, but the comforting and reassuring cowboy voices from Mission Control lulled me into a peaceful sleep. In my seven year old mind, all good things came from America. I wanted to be American and live in the sunshine.
