for amber waves of pain

 
blood in the mouths of
our cities

blood in the thoughts
of our
polictians

blood stains the hands
of lady liberty

crystal meth street
lights

8 bucks for a pack
of smokes

America has a
hard on for self
destruction and
Wall St. while
there are over a
half-a-million
homeless
across the land

Christ climbs down
from the cross
to bless capitalism
and orders take out
chop suey

the left has left us
behind

the right has thrown
a right hook to
knock us senseless

health care for the
wealthy

for the rest, the
graveyard

homes for the
wealthy

for the rest, dirty
alleyways
with rats

food for the
wealthy

for the rest, the
bones of
starvation

the American
dream:

castrated

butchered

gutted clean
through

dead on
arrival

goddamn this
country

goddamn our
leaders

and goddamn
us for letting
them do
it
