America Falling

-

So I close my mind

__open up my heart

Try and fly all around

__like I'm climbing the town

____spinnin' my webs

______eatin' crackers in bed

And I wouldn't just yet

__put a bullet in my head

As long as the gover'ment

__is paying my rent

Though thee economy is in shambles

__and the man is threatening our welfare

Answers to insanity without a pill

Seem to be nonexistent

__sill there's thrill

In an excitement of not having

__to be the one

____that can do anything, "at all"

So that it's not my responsibility

I'm a just a Jay-cat lost

In the system with no way out

The man can't really take

__all us crazies' pay checks away

I know we should have never let

__that baby killer in thee office

For

__if he could kill a baby

Then what made us think

__he wouldn't just kill all the madmen

____in Martial Law?

Still, "I gotta have faith"

God is all that can save our country now

But

__God?

Where is He?

Who is He favoring right now?

Are we on His hit list too?

I don't wanna be doomed

America

Have we lost you?

The kids don't play anymore

They're all too busy studying

__so they don't end up like me

The women have no time to settle down now

Not with us men who can only take care

__of ourselves

With the crazy pay we depend on

To keep on living

But if the system is going to be dead

I will make the best of these

Dying days

__of Thee United States
