Track Name: Thompson's Beat
Defined over time
as a house with a lawn and a dog,
married, with two kids;
but only if you're straight enough to fake it.

We were sold a lot of nonsense
over a white picket fence.
Make us fight over dollars and cents,
laugh at our resistance.

I'm a paycheck away from bankruptcy
and I'm one bad day from being out on the street.
Spent 25K on a Master's degree;
making eleven bills an hour doing data entry.

Here's to the death of the American Dream.
Never really quite what it seemed.
Raise your glass!
Here's to the death of the American Dream.

Designed over time
to inflict debt and drag us down.
Slavery, with benefits,
and lots of stuff to watch on TV.

I'm not my credit rating.
My industry's creating.
Let's see them run and panicking
to the sound of our awakening.

I'm a paycheck away from bankruptcy
and I'm one bad day from being out on the street.
Spent 25K on a Master's degree;
making eleven bills an hour doing data entry.

Here's to the death of the American Dream.
Never really quite what it seemed.
Raise your glass!
Here's to the death of the American Dream.

We need a new dream,
'cause I'm done sleeping

I'm a paycheck away from bankruptcy
and I'm one bad day from being out on the street.
Spent 25K on a Master's degree;
making eleven bills an hour doing data entry.

Here's to the death of the American Dream.
Never really quite what it seemed.
Raise your glass!
Here's to the death of the American Dream.
