    The Land of Misery
    where bashing the
    poor can directly
    reflect the
    Puritan ethic
    of the amerikkkan dream

    The Land of Misery
    a depraved so-sigh-e-ty
    that puts profit over people
    and blames the victims
    for their own poverty

    The Land of Misery
    where if you're black
    the deck was stacked
    against you prenatally

    The Land of Misery
    where in reality this land
    doesn't have enough
    opp-or-tun-ity
    that is why
    you and I
    are continually denied
    basic equalities
    don't you see ~
    selfishness and
    greed permeates
    this entire country

    The Land of Misery
    only elitists and capitalists
    claim to have
    morality....
    I say immoraility...
    because there's an
    attack on every dollar
    spent
    ...they are often
    curbing the costs
    on operating the state
    with no purpose in
    mind but to pocket
    the wealth
    for themselves

    it doesn't matter how
    you slice it
    cut it
    bake it
    serve it
    ...this land is not yours
    ...this land is not free
    This is the Land of Misery

    The Land of Misery
    is the largest prison
    on earth
    populated by the poor
    --the United States of
    Amerikkka
