Here Lies The American Dream
Here lies the American Dream,
Replaced with sin, dashed hopes, plots and schemes.
Here lies what our forefathers died for,
What so many honest folk tried for.
Here lies what I thought was the good life,
Cut down by the blade of a sharp knife,
And knife happens to be named Poverty,
Which would explain why so many honest men robbin' me.
One who hungers for distress
Shall meet an untimely unrest
For it is they who will be set by the wayside
With no friends and nowhere to hide
One who lusts for power
Shall not blossom like a flower
But instead lose meaning
They will find love fleeting
