Down on the earth in the hemisphere west
I have no reason to live, yet something to confess
Everybody sees him, but nobody leaves him
Papery substance is as essential as our seasons.
Fake people manufactured on assembly lines
No emotion or passion, only working for dimes
As the green tornado slashes the fate in our state,
More end up without credit on their plate.
People pulled on strings, a great show at that
Nobody's noticed our brains in a vat?
Conditioned pleasure to wealth, but not overall health
While the loaded budget lies concealed in stealth.
Couldn't follow our forefathers into the drift
Fear of repeating the past, making a great rift
In our nation's values, but do we know
The dam nearby on the verge of blow?
Why not let the bell mean something?
Why are the eagle's wings being clipped?
The American dream will stay asleep,
The vision of morality has been flipped.
Souls being strained, corrupted, consumed,
This is the way of the God in full bloom
Seen it right here, folks, education's going-down
Prices gone up, but I'm not a dunce clown.
Is this how our greed has made us?
Lack of respect, a demolished land thus.
Spirits changing colors clear to envy,
Putting all my hopes out on the table against me.
Is this what others really call freedom?
Isn't this supposed to be the Garden of Eden?
Up upon this big merry go round
Our green god makes the world go around.
Knowledge is nothing,
Treasure is something.
Worshipping the wrong God,
Long live the green fraud,
Cherished in laud.
