Everyone suddenly wants to go green
The supermarkets are being swept clean
There're empty houses on every block
The stock market is out of stock

It's hard to believe, this is the American Dream
And it's supposed to be, the Land of the Free
There's nothing better about me
I'm no greater than any other country
War and famine affects us all
Every empire rises and falls
So don't expect greatness form me
I'm just like any other country

Gas prices shoot up like rockets
Burning holes in the working class' pockets
Houses for sale, houses for rent
Houses and homes pitched like tents

It's hard to believe, this is the American Dream
An it's supposed to be, the Land of the Free
There's nothing better about me
I'm no greater than any other country
War and famine affects us all
Every empire rises and falls
So don't expect greatness form me
I'm just like any other country

Everything is less for more
So they're boarding windows and locking doors
Look around see the depression
Yet they swear, "this is not a recession!"

They're wondering, if this is the American dream
They have us questioning, the Land of the Free
There's nothing better about me
I'm no greater than any other country
War and famine affects us all
Every empire rises and falls
So don't expect greatness form me
I'm just like any other country

Everyone is burning the green
Look around it's a global wide clean
Wrote this in 2008 and decidd to post it after seeing [link]

I orignally thought it was 07 but it was 08

Written-Revolution

This was written before a lot of other things surfaced in the economy but what do you think of the content. Is it too narrow...too broad. What about the flow?
