    Lyrics

    Well, we do okay with the things God gave us
    But will it be enough when it's time to save us
    One in three can't read, so many mouths to feed
    We just sit and wait like a loaded gun

    We cloak ourselves in the great tradition
    The United States of acquisition
    Every man for himself, it's just me and no one else
    Will we ever learn there's a price to pay

    America the free, wake up from your fantasy
    Is the nation so divided we can't see
    That there's work to be done, somethin' there for everyone
    I know I'll start with me

    Six o' clock it's another story
    A gunman down in a blaze of glory
    Only ten years old makes my blood run cold
    And the press descends like birds of prey

    And politicians stay in office
    Far too long to vote their conscience
    Lobbied, bought and sold, trading votes for gold
    They've forgotten that they work for us, yeah

    America the free, wake up from your fantasy
    Is the nation so divided we can't see
    That there's work to be done, somethin' there for everyone
    I know I'll start with me

    For the beast to stay alive, it has to feed
    That's why in times of peace, they create an enemy
    What we called the big red scare is just my neighbor over there
    With hopes and dreams, the same as me, the same as me

    America the free, wake up from your fantasy
    Is the nation so divided we can't see
    That there's work to be done, somethin' there for everyone
    I know I'll start with me, I'll start with me

    Well, we do okay with the things God gave us
