Looks like hope has lit up the path
but it isn’t true, please just do the math.
If one and one equals three,
then the system has done a grave injustice to you and me.
Don’t be fooled by the bright lights and the American Dream,
for nothing is at all what is seems.
Success comes to the few, not to the many
while most of us are scrounging trying to save up our pennies.
If we work hard and pull ourselves up by our bootstraps
then wouldn’t we still end up right on our backs?
We’ve been brainwashed from the beginning
and they’ve been doing all the winning.
Do what you love even if you don’t make much
rest your cares on me, we can always go Dutch.
