Track Name: The End of An American Dream
7 o' clock on the dot
The workers are here to punch the clock
And everyone knows
To hit the lights and start the show
You work your fingers to the bone
Make the dollar the head of the home
And it makes me want to scream
This is the end of American Dream

Sometimes I'm feeling down
Sometimes I feel caged
Every time I look around
It's the same god-damn thing

All of the local shops are closed
No money for food or clothes
And everyone sees
To give up on their dreams
The day they were born they plowed the land
They planted the seed, they called it man
And everyone grows
They harvest the crop and nobody knows

The towers falling down
And all we feel is rage
Their plans are safe and sound
America, we can save

This is the end of American Dream

(guitar solo)

As the death toll rises
Who do we blame?
They use the news to fuel the flame
They shroud our eyes so we are blind
We're always 3 steps behind
Congressmen do as they're told
They sell the rights for riches and gold
And they want us to believe they give a damn about our dreams

This is the end of American Dream (x4)
Track Name: Living With The Bitch
Baby! Why you hurt me so bad?
I work all night and day
Doing the best I can
Yeah!
And baby! You turned me away
You nag all night and day
Wrecking what we had
Yeah!

And it goes on all night and day
It goes on all night and day
It goes on all night and day, yea
It goes on all night and day
Go!

All night and day!
Oh!!!
Living with the bitch!

Maybe! I can have my own way? Yeah!
I work all night and day
Bring home my hard earned pay Yeah!
Baby! You can go away Yeah!
Dirty bitch, eat the ditch, broken dish, lazy bitch
I have one wish! I make the switch!

And it goes on all night and day
It goes on all night and day
It goes on all night and day, yea
It goes on all night and day

All night and day
Oh!!!
Living with the bitch!

I went to the doctor the other day
He gave me what I need
He took away my heartache and my pain
He said that bitch, you gotta leave
I need a break!
Track Name: It's Gone
Things will never change
They just stay the same
Dream another dream
You've played your last scene
Time took so long
Everything is gone!

It's gone!
Oh baby it's gone!
It's gone

Take me from this place
So I'll forget your face
As the years fade away
Won't be much to say
My soul is so scarred
It was so damn hard
Our love went wrong
Everything is gone!

It's gone!
Oh baby it's gone!
It's gone

It's gone
All the love we made
It's gone
It's the price we paid
It's gone
All the love and trust
It's gone
No more we no more us!
It's gone
All the time we had
It's gone
The good and the bad
It's gone
The plans for us
It's gone
Our time turned to dust

It's gone!
It's gone!
Track Name: The Room With The Pink Rose
She said you got to find a way to get me out of here today
They said you have to stay the baby will soon be here Ok!
Maybe if we pray the baby will be ok
Things will be alright just hang in there my dear

And the days just linger on
The baby's hearbeat's strong
Hope starts to settle in
That's when it begins

There's no answer to why! Why our baby has to die
Maybe this is just a test to see if we can handle this
Hush now baby don't you cry, I will sing you a lullaby
The time has come to face this risk
My god can we handle this?

And the room felt out of place
Void of feelings, just empty space
The nurse tells her to push on
There's no heartbeat something's wrong!

Daddy's waiting here to greet your pretty face
Fah la la la la la la la la la la la la
La! La! La! La! La!

Dream a pretty dream that takes you away from this
Your Mom and Daddy's angel now fly away to heaven's gate

And the pain starts to settle in
Our hearts are broken
Our little baby's gone
I held her 'till her heart was gone
