Song Description

frustration of being out of work. Asking Uncle Sam [all of America]... 'Are YOU listening'.... do you hear our plight? Do you even care? Stop what you are doing and take a moment and LISTEN to what we are telling you... Unshackle the regulations that are not enabling the businesses to hire. WE NEED JOBS !

Story Behind the Song

family members are out of work... barely scraping by... having to be helped by parents just to get by. Unable to buy a house, put food on the table for the family, in debt and having to live on credit cards. Found many, many people in the same boat, so to speak, all across the nation and around the world... the problem is, that the elected people in the government are NOT listening to what people are telling them they need.

I really like the song, there's a lot of truth in the lyrics and I really like the drums and vocals. This song also brings forth the way that ninety percent of Americans feel as well.

    - Randal Dunkle

With a top notch professional delivery like this, how could Uncle Sam NOT listen?!?

Lyrics

Well, we're sending you this e-mail,
You don't seem to understand,
Folks are out here hurtin',
In what once was the promised land.

We elected you to help us,
When we stood and cast our vote,
Seems we were mistaken,
Hope you're taking note.

CHORUS:
We need jobs to feed our family,
We need jobs to pay our bills,
We need jobs to fix this country,
To repair all of it's ills.
Are you listening?
Are you listening?
Are you listening.... Uncle Sam?
Sincerely, every child, woman, and man.

We're discouraged, tired, and beaten down,
So frustrated, just plain mad,
We lost our homes, our hope, our spirit,
And dreams that we once had.

It's your empty words and speeches,
Stop playin' it right or left,
No one will hire in this political mire,
To our voices you've gone deaf.

Bridge:
Stop and listen to what we say,
Walk in our shoes for just one day,
Unshackle businesses so they know where they stand,
Are you listening?
