becoming a nightmare scene
We bought the farm,
American dream,
Instant gratification,
Always more, more.

We bought the farm
In a war within ourselves,
Wanting what’s right
Instead of cherishing facts.

We bought the farm,
scrawled graffiti,
pollution and greed
signed the contract.

We bought the farm,
richest country in the world
And gave it all away
Ourselves the awful price.
