even those in the optimist club
have a hard time staying in love
18 members of a dying breed
we know what colour we bleed

bookdrive for the school children
independence day and flag distrubition
the general level of pessimism
the worst in almost 30 years

4 dollar a gallon of gas
as jobs get slashed??
you love your house now give it back

keeping him through the pledge of allegiance
cos you aint dead yet
just disgusted and scared living thru this mess

this year we are not so sure
battered and bruised
young and old
stable or stoned, stable or stoned...

it's happening everywhere we lookin
everythings rehearsed
should be better
lifes getting better why do people feel worse
everyone needs someone to blame
but things don't go their way

lifes getting better why do people feel worse
everyones rehearsed
something new, someone new
people need someone to blame when things dont go our way

maybe the price's to be paid
maybe the price has to be paid
model american
model american, take us by the hand
live through depression, yeah
