A False Dream


Land of opportunity
Success all around
Do what you want
Make yourself what you want
Only Restricted by law
Pushed forward by motivation
Accelerated by hard work

Reality kicks in
The whip cracks down
Resistance is futile
Inequality is law
Freedom is false
Your skin creates your destiny
It dictates your future
Seals your fate

But they stood up
Questioned the rules
Fought the laws
Fought for freedom
News spread
Of the freedom gained
Of the sacrifices made
To build a better America
To find the dream
To build the dream
To live the dream
