Whatever happened to the American Dream?
What happened to the courage that gleamed,
Like the sun in the sky, even when things were bad?
What would they say, the men who made this country,
if they saw it today? Would they be proud of what we’ve done,
or ashamed of what we haven’t?
Whatever happened to valor, justice, and love?
Where is the country that you read about in the history books?
Has it gone completely?
