Land of Liberty
Lyrics
You may not want to know
You're on your own
Greed has outgrown bleeding hearts
In the Land of Liberty

Your neighbors don't know you
And for their names, you don't have a clue
Just a how do you do
In the Land of Liberty

And all the reasons lie
In your heart and mind
But you wonder why
You can't even try to care

Some say, Some day
We will, be o.k.

Trust accounts grow from interest everyday
As congressmen protect the rich for pay
By leaving the poor to pray
In the Land of Liberty

Poverty breeds drugs and despair
Hope for good jobs and decent homes is fair
Old money can spare
In the Land of Liberty

Some say, some day

Politicians, businessmen be forewarned
The tide has turned and hope again is born
We the people demand respect
In the Land of Liberty

And with the strength of a mighty storm
We'll conquer greed in every shape and form
From Wall Street to D.C.
In the Land of Liberty

And all the reasons lie
In your heart and mind
You've discovered why
The answers are in your
need to share

Some say, Some day (repeat)

We the people
of the United States
In order to form a more perfect union
Establish justice
And hold these truths to be self-evident:
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness

No more greed
No more poor
No more lies
No more war
