    I pray I wake up!

    screams of terror
    the world awake
    living a nightmare
    our lives at stake
    discussing parallels
    of reasons why
    doesn't matter
    chances are
    we all may die
    thrust to the forefront
    is politcal gain
    Reagan economics
    by a different name
    pawns on a chessboard
    King captures Rook
    we are expendable
    but dependable
    completely overlooked
    I pinch myself
    to see what has gone wrong
    but low and behold
    its the same ol song
    united we follow
    to our deaths
    WAKE UP AMERICA!
    now its the national debt
    the economy is falling
    WAIT, I ain't done yet
    money is the root
    of all evil you see
    two face politicians
    lying through their teeth
    while the media teases
    with bias truths
    as the pied piper blows
    we follow in rows
    straight to the cliff
    nowhere to go
    I PRAY I WAKE UP!
    from all this distress
    falses promises
    hidden schemes
    to realize the last
    400 years.........was it only a dream?
