lyrics

Trying to get ahead
Just doing the right thing
That don't change that life's
So goddamn hard
I guess it's the same
And Bruce, you were talking to me
I'm feeling like I was born
To run away

Having dreams for America
Is a losing game
The way we live in America
Is a crying shame

Keep your tired and your poor
We don't want 'em
Or so I'm told by my TV
Donald Trump and Richard Nixon
All the same
Not a crook until
You can't deny the blame

Having dreams for America
Is a losing game
The way we live in America
Is a crying shame
