Or is it an illusion?
Do we wake up and feel no burden?
We follow speed limits and laws: worry about money and taxes
Is freedom really free?
Pollution and waste, children in the streets and terrorists roam the nation
Is this what we fought for?
Poverty and death
Why do we live this way?
Imprison the innocent and let criminals go free
Why do we do the things we do?
Hit our children and wife's
We abolished slavery but we treat others different
Why are teens so self-absorbed?
Popularity and looks; who did what with who
We wanted independence, our own ways, didn't we?
We fought hard and gained all that only to live like this
Who do we blame?
We blame the blameless; we blame out friends and neighbors our pets and our cars
We never think to blame ourselves
Why did we fight to break away from England?
Restrictions and limitations
What do we have now?
Didn't change too much did it?
This is what we wanted, we got it
Now lets make it into what we really wanted
