PostHeaderIcon The American Dream Trilogy

Prologue:

I wonder where we are

And what we're going to do

We have come so far

But where are we going to

It's hard to think about it

I hate to mention

I'm likely to get dismissed

But though we try to run and hide

Eventually, we deal

It's a shame

It's a shame

It's a simple crying shame (So what're we gonna do?)

It's a shame

It's a shame

Well it's really quite a shame

Show me who you are

Follow me to you

I see your shining star

Where you leading to?

It's hate to think about it

It's hard to mention

I'd rather just live in bliss

But though we try to duck and hide

Eventually we reel

It's a shame

It's a shame

It's a simple crying shame (So what're we gonna do?)

It's a shame

It's a shame

Well it's really quite a shame

The American Dream:

The day dawns gray and sullen

I know

The paper told me so

My wife's frying in the kitchen

I know

Cause I'm so fried

You see

We stayed up way past midnight

'til two or so

Trying to let it go

Got to let it go

It's hard to hang on so

The light is slowly fading

I know

I watched it on TV

W e both stare into the cathode

It glows

And time slips by

We'll probably stay up way past midnight

Until two or so

Time to let it go ...

Yeah it's so hard to know

When its time to let things go ...

And it'll be a long tomorrow

Today just seemed to last

Eternally ...

So let's forget it.

Let's just forget it

The Aftermath:

 

There might come a time

In someone's life

They just wake up to

What they have been missing

They might not be the type

Who looks too close

They broadbrush over things

I had this job

I called her my wife

She claims that I

Just never seem to listen

I'm not the type

I'm all in my head

Brushing over things

So maybe I should have learned to dance

Like a ballerina marrionette?

Maybe I learned that luck and chance

Is all about the bending tree

... and that's the way it has to be

There may come a time

In a person's life

Where they drop the ball and

Set the bridges burning

Cause it's not the style

They wanted for their life

They so backed into things

And maybe they'll never learn to dance

Like some ballerina marrionette

And maybe a turn of luck and chance

Is all about the breaking tree

And that's the way it has to be

I just could never learn to dance

Like a ballerina marrionette

So maybe I took a lucky chance

And reached escape velocity

But that's the way it's got to be

Yeah that's the way it's got to be

Yeah that's the way it's got to be

For me ...
