CAN WE EVEN MEND THIS BROKEN LAND?
I remember, back in the day, when trying to make a life
For one's family was easy enough to do
Keep your time card punched in, work 9-5, an hour for lunch then
What the heck's happened to this land?
Our parents' safety net has fallen down
No way to retire on this joke of a pension,
Our structures are all unsound
The body politic is floundering
How did those losers ever win?
So tell me then, my homeless friend, when did your COBRA end?
I can still recall the ease with I purchased DVD's
Or any grown-up toy that caught my eye
Our church took up a collection, just so we could afford to pay attention
WTF happened to the middle class?
The American dream has been outsourced
Why does a car cost more than internal organs?
When we were safer on a horse
How can we mend this broken land?
Get up and running once again?
I'd like to help out, but right now it's time for CSI once again.
