AMERICAN DREAM

THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS THE AMERICAN DREAM , HAVE YOU TOOK A LOOK AROUND?, THE HAVE NOTS AND THE CLICK SCENE, HANGIN' ROUND YOUR TOWN, WORK YOUR FINGERS TO THE BONE, TRYIN' TO MAKE A DIME, YOU BEST BELIEVE ,IT'S HARD TO SEE, WHILE THEY STEADY ROB YOU BLIND, (CHORUS) OH, I'LL FIGHT IT TILL THE DAY I DIE!,

THE TAXMAN AND THE COMPANIES, THEY BLEED YA TILL YOUR DRY, BIG BROTHER AND THE POLICE, TRY TO STEAL YOUR PIECE OF MIND, PUT OUR BACKS AGAINST THE WALL, SQUEEZED US TILL WE'RE EMPTY, YOU FEED US CROW, AS YOU WELL KNOW, I'VE HAD MUCH MORE THAN MY PLENTY,

HAIL!,HAIL! MR. PRESIDENT, YOUR ALL THE SAME TO ME, GREEDY MEN MAKIN' MONEY FROM BLOOD, AND NEVER HAVE TO DIG A GRAVE, HAD MY SHARE, HAD IT UP TO HERE, YOU TAKE WHEN WE'RE NOT ABLE, YOU'VE WENT TO FAR WITH YOUR DISREGARD, NOW THERE'S BLOOD UPON THE TABLE,
