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)
