"Foreclosure Of A Dream" as written by and Dave/ellefson Mustaine....
Rise so high, yet so far to fall
A plan of dignity and balance for all
Political breakthrough, euphoria's high
More borrowed money, more borrowed time
Backed in a corner, caught up in the race
Means to an end ended in disgrace
Perspective is lost in the spirit of the chase

Foreclosure of a dream
Those visions never seen
Until all is lost
Personal holocaust
Foreclosure of a dream

Barren land that once filled a need
Are worthless now, dead without a deed
Slipping away from an iron grip
Nature's scales are forced to tip
The heartland cries, loss of all pride
To leave ain't believing, so try and be tried
Insufficient funds, insanity and suicide

Foreclosure of a dream
Those visions never seen
Until all is lost
Personal holocaust
Foreclosure of a dream

Now with new hope some will be proud
This is no hoax, no one pushed out
Recieve a preieve and bea pioneer
Break new ground of a new frontier
New ideas will surely get by
No deed, or dividend some may ask, why?
You'll find the solution, the answer's in the sky

Rise so high, yet so far to fall
A plan of dignity and balance for all
Political breakthrough, euphoria's high
More borrowed money, more borrowed time

Foreclosure of a dream
Those visions never seen
Until all is lost
Personal holocaust
Foreclosure of a dream

Foreclosure of a dream
Those visions never seen
Until all is lost
Personal holocaust
Foreclosure of a dream

Holocaust

    General CommentThis song is how family owned businesses (in this case farming) are being destroyed by large rich conglomerate corporations.

    General CommentForeclosure of a Dream is about something that happened with Ellefson's family under the Reagan administration in Hartland, Minnesota. Dave says, "It's about reagonmics and how it took advantage of the real nucleus of America — the farmers."

    General CommentThis song is so sad, it's about normal people who buy the house of their dreams only to become another sub-prime foreclosure statistic.

    General Comment"You'll find the solution, the answers in the sky." - Am I the only person who thinks Dave is talking about religion in this line? When ever I hear it I think he's talking about his faith in God.

    General CommentI think he is talking about using their land as huge solar collectors for our endless energy consumption. The sun is the answer in the sky. The wind is also in the sky for windmill farms. Like any business, a farm has to grow and change with the times. Just like the folks at the RIAA, the farms are a dying business unless they grow and adapt.

    General CommentOh and by the way, there is no god. You should have figured that out about the time you found out your parents had been lying to you for years about a fat ass cracker that sneaks into your house and leaves you presents.

    General Commentthe song is about how farmers are gettin' screwed over by a gov't who doesn't care about what keeps this nation ticking. all they see is an oppurtunity to fill their wallets a little more. when mustaine says "the answers in the sky" i believe that he is talking about asking God for help. he has openly admitted that he is a christian so i think some of his songs reflect that.
