of the people by the people for the people
those are words is that we put in our nation's creed
but only right here in america do we feed for countries while some starve on our streets

only right here in america, ar age 18, can you qualify to die in a war with
bombs and guns but you can't have your first bottle of rum until you turn 21
this is America
home of the brave home of the wealthy, rich
home of the paid
it's also a home of the homeless, the hurt
and the deceived
and home of natural disasters that left families in need some say that this is the home
of hatred and the home of greed but in philadelphia there's the city of
brotherly love and America's home of the highly achieved
this place... this nation
it's home of children with a bright future
it's also home of video games they can teach those same kids to be carjackers
and shooters. Robbers, mobsters, gangsters or murderers this is our America and the whole
free world has heard of us
we're home of the proud and home of a lot of inventions
sad to say we're also home of babies that are born with a cocaine addiction
this is the home of the red
the white and the blue
where at times it can feel like you're hated by many and loved by few. This is home of the greem your loved by few it's home of the green
grass the blue shutters and the white picket fence that we talk about
it's also home of people with bad credit that can't afford the American dream house
because in our american a vast majority of us going into debt
because we go to work, we get our checks we spend what's left
because in America school systems most aren't taught how to properly invest and
because of it the national debt and student loan crisis are bubblin'
meanwhile we can find common lines of agreements between democrats and republicans but
even if they did agree I wouldn't jump to give a round of applause because in
our America we tend to put bandages over the problems without really fixing the cause
but this is america
a place where outsiders find it difficult to become a resident this is
the place where our ball players can potentially earn more than our president
this is the home a top models tv shows and actors. The place where cable is
filled with violence, rock bands, and rappers a place where we're created equal but
use racial slurs for practice. This is home where almost everything is done
backwards. This is with 36.3 percent of our kids are born bastards
but I tell you to forget that number beacause every year it grows faster so welcome to
America where you are free you're free to have religion or you can be religion free
you go watch God on television or turn that off and put in a DVD
the ins, the outs, the good, the bad
it's all America and i'm proud of it
Even though in our past we've started barbaric belligerent battles where nothing good can
come out of it
but you gotta take pride
you gotta take pride in being an American because many dream of being in
this great nation because they have never been
they have never been in a state that's part of a very fortunate country, here we
can drink when we're thirsty and there's an excess of food when we're hungry we can do whatever we
so choose but many abuse their privileges and we can become whatever
we want but we make excuses for the conditions we're living in.
Well I say it's time out for excuses and time in for execution
there's no more playing the middle either you're educated
or you're relegated
either you're gonna make something happen or you simply will not in America you
can stare at the ladder of success or get the courage and climb to the top because right
here in America you can do it because you have that opportunity but it's going to take a colection
of all of us to change what is in our American communities
What will you do?
