THE AMERICAN DREAM
Have you bought into.the scheme?
That keeps you in debt, to the 1%
The education, The house, the car
I want, I want, I want it all!!
But first, I have to pay off, this college
25,000.00 in a loan hole.
I must get a job, to pay it all off.
Sadly I can't get a job in my field
This was not, apart of the deal.
They told me to get a education.
I would be at the top.
I have to find a job
If it means, pushing a mop.
1 credit card left. I've paid off 3
These interest rates, are killing me.
I wish I took some time, to think things through
The white picket fence, if only I knew.
THE AMERICAN DREAM!!
I had to, pursue.
A mortgage seemed so, unreal at the time
That old French word
Mort- DEAD GAGE- PLEDGE
Plagues my mind.
What was I thinking! I'm not free!!
In debt, I will forever be
I bought the dream- red white & blue
Education, house, car & other things to
Yes I bought the dream, but they sold me a lie
Before you want, a piece of the pie
In debt, we trust till the day we die!!!
