American Dream Denial

How come we only show the beauty

How come we don't show the horror

How come we only show the purity

How come we don't show the gore


We suck people in

Promising them riches

Only to enslave their bodies

With prolonged hours of toil


We say, "Come here to be free"

But in return you must be

A slave to our system

Read the fine print


America, the land of hope

The land of the brave

The land of the free

The land of pipe dreams
