The American Dream

The table is tilted
The game is rigged
Continue with what you were doing
Everything is fine

We'll keep telling you all the things
You want to hear
We'll make sure you feel
Safe and secure

While we keep continuing
To get richer and more powerful
We'll make sure you feel
Happy and contented

Isn't this what you've always wanted?
You're living out
The American Dream!

Stop what you're doing 
And open your eyes
Things aren't always
What they seem
