American Nightmare

The dream of freedom
is the freedom to dream
Never get your due
Seem more than the scum
that they wipe from their shoes

The tragedy is
that you let it all happen
Apathy killed it,
You cowardice did it
the anthems and flags
They merely hid it


Choices are false and
you know that they're liars
The only thing left is to
wait for the pyres
Your purpose, to work.
your life, you cant choose
End it all now
you've got nothing to lose


You block out the pain
but the drugs dont work
Don't care, don't feel
Your outlook is bleak
with souless eyes, its all too real

The wars are still raging
over oil and water
All this death to attone for,
Whose sins are these?
Your leaders who led you
Like sheep to the slaughter


Choices are false and
you know that they're liars
The only thing left is to
wait for the pyres
Your purpose, to work
your life, you cant choose
End it all now
you've got nothing to lose


well that's about half the song, more verses to finish. I knwo its really cliche, but I really want to finish a song without thinking "Too cliche = crap" (plus my band is getting pissd that im not on the case as such)


Any and all feedback greatfully accepted
