WHAT HAPPENED TO MY COUNTRY?

WHAT HAPPENED TO MY COUNTRY?
THE GREAT, U.S.OF A.

WHAT HAPPENED TO MY COUNTRY?
HOW DID IT GET THIS WAY?

THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT DID NOT HAPPEN OVERNIGHT.
WHILE WE WERE ALL SLEEPING TIGHT.

WHAT HAPPENED TO MY COUNTRY?
THE GREAT, U.S.OF A.

OUR PEOPLE HAD PUT THEIR TRUST
IN A GOVERNMENT THAT SAT AROUND LIKE RUST

WHAT HAPPENED TO MY COUNTRY?
THE GREAT, U.S.OF A.

OUR FOREFATHERS FOUGHT TO KEEP US FREE
NOW LOOK WHAT’S HAPPENED TO YOU AND ME

WHO WAS WATCHING THE STORE
WHILE OUR FINANCIAL SYSTEM WAS ESCAPING THE LAW

JUST LOOK AT ALL OUR PEOPLE SUFFERING EACH DAY,
WHILE OUR GOVERNMENT, WAS LOOKING THE OTHER WAY.

WHAT HAPPENED TO MY COUNTRY?
THE GREAT, U.S.OF A.

PEOPLE ARE LOSING THEIR HOMES, THEIR JOBS, AND THEIR INVESTMENTS EVERYDAY.

WHILE OUR GOVERNMENT IS MOVING VERY SLOWLY OR DOING NOTHING TO HELP MAKE THIS PAIN GO AWAY.

WHAT HAPPENED TO MY COUNTRY?
THE GREAT, U.S.OF A.
