american dream lyrics – eleven fifty seven

is he the black messiah
is he another four years of bush
i hate wasting time talking about politicians
but is there any other way

johnny lost his home and had to move
told his kids to say goodbye to friends at school
unemployment spiked
the cost of food and fuel is rising
the enemy is compromising the

american dream just an idea worth
keeping around
american dream just an idea worth
keeping around

i see to many people living on the streets
i see to many kids go to bed without enough to eat
i’ve seen years of failed policies
with troops overseas oil dependency now
with this great nation

and all along i’ve felt as though my hands are being tied
and i’m reaching out for change
we’re all reaching out for change
i push i pull and try to live
it’s pulling so hard now somethings gotta give

american dream just an idea worth
keeping around
american dream just an idea worth
keeping around
