Broken Dreams

They said it was just a passing fad
Dark clouds continue to stay
You have to take the good with the bad
But the bad just won't go away

They tell you to live the American dream
And fight for that dream at all cost
But now we all live the American scheme
Too many dreams have been lost

It cost an arm and a leg for a tank of gas
And people are losing their jobs
Lay it all on the line to borrow more cash
But there are already too many scars

So open your eyes oh say can you see
Is this the American way
No home can be saved and nothing is free
And our dreams have been all swept away
