I used to believe
The Powers That Be were looking out for me
Was way too Naïve
When I reflect I start to suspect…
We’re building our debt
(Though no one’s saying it yet)
We’re living asleep
Which makes us slaves for them to keep
Our Fathers gave us a republic
And challenged us to keep it
I sometimes wonder if they’d be sick
If they were here to see it
Pursuing liberty and life
Build a home, find a wife
Raise a family, proud and strong
But lately there’s been something wrong
A change has occurred, just not the one we wanted            
I can’t find the word, I’m just a little scared and haunted
If happiness is the root of it
I need some help with my pursuit of it
So get in line and help yourself, please
To the last of the Govmn't Cheese
Most of my blood and all of my sweat
End up going to Big Government’s percent
And anything I put away
Loses value every day
The left hand working against the right
This didn’t happen overnight…
We let it go and gave it up
So stay in line and stay shut up
Everybody’s waiting for change
But not if they have to rearrange
The life they’ve always known
But I think it can be shown
The middle keeps losing again and again
The poor have given up on waiting for when
The rich could be richer
If they’d see the big picture
And not have to win by so damn much
