Song Description

We were taught from birth that our country is the greatest on earth...that we could have or be anything we wished...if we worked hard. That's falling apart for many...how do we get the dream back?

Story Behind the Song

None really...just sitting in my studio wondering what is happening in our world. Would the great dreamers of the past have a chance in today's world?

Lyrics

(first verse)

Well you pull up to the pump
And, it's higher than the day before
You wonder, are you gonna eat and pay the bills
Is it either/or...

You mighta seen it coming
But you never dreamed it'd look like this
Every dollar's spoken for while
Your dreams are laid to rest

Chorus:

What're we gonna do to bring back
The American dream?
In hearts across the land you can hear
The American scream...

Where's our country...who are we?
Pass the American pie.
What are we working for?
We want to live before we die

(second verse)

Everybody's up to their earballs
In obligations day-to-day
That's what you do to in life
Paving the American way

We don't expect it to be easy
Just opportunity
Anything's possible...
At least that's what they say

Chorus:

What're we gonna do to bring back
The American dream?
In hearts across the land you can hear
The American scream...

Where's our country...who are we?
Pass the American pie.
What are we working for?
We want to live before we die
