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


__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



Where is He?

Who is He favoring right now?

Are we on His hit list too?

I don't wanna be doomed


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
