lyrics

There’s nothing free in the home of the brave
The air we breathe has a cost and that’s frankly insane
The “ka-ching” of the register is all that we crave
And if you ain’t got no money then you better start digging your own grave
So much for the land of opportunity

So much for the “American Dream”
There’s no such thing as ”starting from the bottom”
When the best thing you can hope for is to keep yourself from going under
Barely keep your head above the water
And to top it off you’ll always wonder
How you made it through every blunder

Don’t ask for help you won’t get far
Don’t ask for anything... HANDS UP! STAY RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE!
Don’t try to make a better life you’ll get shut down on the spot When the economic pressure is so heavy you got no choice BUT ROT!

So much for the land of opportunity
So much for the “American Dream”
There’s no such thing as ”starting from the bottom”
When the best thing you can hope for is to keep yourself from going under
Barely keep your head above the water
And to top it off you’ll always wonder
How you made it through every blunder

And the problem is the state of mind
Of the people in this country who say “I got mine, FUCK YOU!”

So much for the land of opportunity
So much for the “American Dream”
There’s no such thing as ”starting from the bottom”
When the best thing you can hope for is to keep yourself from going under
Barely keep your head above the water
And to top it off you’ll always wonder
How you made it through every blunder
