Track Name: American Nightmare
Jessie doesn't know which way to go
He's got a wife two kids and nothing to show
For fifteen years in that factory
Laid off on a Friday so no killing spree

When he told Kathy he was drunk that night
She cried herself to sleep now nothing is right
And the kids won't even look him in the face
They're gonna lose the house it's a total disgrace

Now it's day to day and the bills pile up
And Jessie knows that it's never enough
Now he's hanging on by the skin of his teeth
It's all he can do not to get up and leave

Chorus:
Cause it's down down down we go
From the cities to the towns and everything we know
There's gotta be a way out of this American nightmare
This American nightmare
Nightmare
Nightmare

Well Jessie's not dumb yeah he knows a few things
He's got a family to feed and a wedding ring
So he took it on down to the pawn shop
That bastard just laughed and bought it right off

Kathy just smiled when he brought food home
And the kids ate it right down to the bone
In bed that night she kissed his hand
Where the ring once was but the memory will stand

And Jessies knows if it comes to it
He's got Kathy's ring and it's a perfect fit
For their dreams that crumbled, he'll build them back up
With their love their love he hopes it's enough

Chorus

Cause it's enough to drive a man insane
Or do something to cause people pain
If it means that there's a light on the other side

And how much hell will you take for a little piece of heaven at the end of the day?
And how far will you let it go when you're trading off part, part of your soul?

Chorus
