Land of Greed

Hell on earth is what I see 
A whole world run on greed 
Deception shooting out of so many voices 
Politicians that pretend that we have choices 
This great nation of the free 
Slaughtered sons out at war left to bleed 
Decepted into believing they fight for us 
The great land that they trust 
Do they fight for freedom? 
Because we are free  
They fight for bankers souless greed 
Sons of this land die on foreign soil 
So politicians and bankers can reap the spoils 
Many lives lost for what?? 
Because of lies that we are taught 
This great land of the free 
To bad it doesn't apply to you or me
