The "American Dream"

The “American Dream”

Diamonds, cars, money, the expensive things

Where women are ready to sacrifice anything

For a blood diamond ring

Where money becomes life over death

Before life’s simple things

What happened to happiness that we can cherish together?

Instead this dream has us focused on money

Like it will last forever

Is this what you really call the American Dream?

Where people focus on money and the next big thing

Is this what life is really all about having expensive things?

Getting married and having big diamond rings

Is this what you really call the American Dream?

A place where our children can’t even be raised by two parents

A place where women are forced to abort their children

Under circumstances due to these childish ass men

Is this really how we raise our men?

To walk out on their family before the child life even begins?

Like do the mothers really teach these men what if that child was you?

Would you give your mother that option of even aborting you?

Is this what we really call the American Dream?

Where the homeless go days without eating a thing

And the people above them go and flaunt their rings?

Is this what we really call the American Dream?

Where rich people get millions of dollars

While a poor child is struggling to go to college because of a few thousand dollars

Is this what we really call the American Dream?

Where crime rates increase in poor communities

Due to lack of parenting and no unity

Is this what we really call the American dream?

A world where we work ourselves till our death

Only to buy a big house and car that will forever put us in debt

A world where people live above their means

only to buy extra SHIT that they don't even need

I guess this is a great FUCKING DREAM!
