American Dream RIP - LYRICS

This one’s for the funeral of the late American Dream
Cause of death determined to be the Wall Street Machine

This one’s for the family, trying to make ends meet
And the old man in the shadow, living on the street

This one’s for the weary, and the workers on the line
Aint no hero coming, gotta help yourself this time

American Dream, in your grave
on our knees, we will be brave
Rest In Peace, American Dream

This one’s for the soldier, fighting a foreign war
And the patriot shoppin at the local big box store

This one’s for the graduate, buried in student debt
Living with the folks, looking for jobs they can’t get

This one’s for the sinner, the saint, and all the rest
Aint no savior coming, gonna have to do our best

American Dream, in your grave
on our knees, we will be brave
Rest In Peace, American Dream

This one’s for the 1%, who gladly spare a dime
And know their bread is buttered by the good ole 99

This one’s for the rebel, blinded by the rain
Fighting to be heard, and see the dragon slain

This one’s for the wounded, the wicked and the wise
Aint no help a coming, it’s time for us to rise

American Dream, in your grave
on our knees, we will be brave
Rest In Peace, American Dream (repeat)
