lyrics

Take this dream, Unravel it by the thread
We're scraping by we're cutting throat just to get ahead!
You think those dollars talk? You think that they reflect?
There's no truth in the fabric that you wear around your neck!

Bite The Bullet, Stick Out Your Fucking Neck
Now Everybody's Choking On The Dream That We Protect
We BLEED BLEED BLEED! Bleed Out For These Dollars
RING OUT THOSE BLUE, WHITE, AND BLOODY COLLARS

Ring those collars out, Blue, White, and Bloody Collars...
Our differences are now the creed that we all tread
We just gotta get ahead, We'll KILL to get ahead!
So many satisfied, Taking pain in stride
Until the day you won't forget what it takes to find your pride
These standards are getting old
We go on and keep telling ourselves how successful we really are
Just keep believing, keep on striving, I bet you'll get real far
Elude the reasons why we bleed, pursue the promise
But it's not guaranteed, It never was, Do we CONSUME this ideal,
Or IS IT CONSUMING US?

Maybe it's time we asked ourselves what it is that we really want,
The things we seek, the system we feed, give it an honest thought!
Constantly cry, sweat, bleed for The American Dream?
Sometimes you have to ask it twice, too many times I've had to
SCREAM: Does this dream define us? Let's break this stranglehold!
Or will it just divide us? THESE STANDARDS ARE GETTING OLD
