"we the people" as written by Chad L. Gray, Ryan Martinie, Matthew Mcdonough and Greg Tribbett....
I thought we the people had a brain
I thought we the people had a say
Could of sworn I read it somewhere,
Might of seen it on a bumper sticker

I though we the people had a right
I guess we the people we're wrong
We the people are on
Let's go elect another god

The love they make
I don't give a damn anyway
Rules are made to break
Too big too mean too blind
The American dream
Or a bag of magic beans
You can fight on TV
Whatever you need

Send me your tired
Your poor and broken
Send me your life
So I can break you

We the people can have a plan
We the people can make a stand

Coulda swore I read it somewhere
Mighta seen it in the funny papers
Your money's made to take
Too cheap to steal, to rob
I could tell you had a dream
That busted at the seams
You can get it on the t.v
Whatever you need

Send me your tired
Your poor and broken
Send me your life
So I can break you
Give me your trust
Your faith and wishes
Give me your life
So I can own you
Control you!

Hope I sell out
Hope I sell out
Every day there's something new to try
Every day there's something new to buy
Every day there's a new American dream

Send me your tired
Your poor and broken
Send me your life
So I can break you
Give me your trust
Your faith and wishes
Give me your life
So I can own you

    General CommentW00t first to comment. Okay well here's how I see it. it seems he is questioning us.

    First paragraph it seems he is saying:
    "We The people, of the united states of afuckingmerica, we have the RIGHT to stand against our government... so why isnt anyone doing anything? Someone said we have rights... do we? Or did i see it on a bumper sticker? It really is writtendown? Where? Why do we sit infront of our TV's and watch them pass stupid laws? (But who cares it doesnt affect me... right?... Wait thats silly, the government tells us thats wrong though to second guess them, because they know what they are doing... (*haha?*)... Are we suppose to treat and idolize our president (in this case Obama) or the government, are we suppose to think they are our god(s)? They tell us we are living the american dream, The president is telling us he is working on a plan, and here are some magic beans if you vote for me!"

    Second paragraph is the government sending subliminal messages, Send me your weak and tired, give me your life, so i can controle you.


    Third paragraph: "We the people can do something about this... I think. I must be crazy, i probably saw it in silly magazine articles or maybe a rule book called the CONSTITUTION... but rules are made to be broken. Oh no, Taxes, We have to bail out some buisnesses, our money is for the government not us, haha silly people. I think I will still sit here on my ass and listen to the president talk about money.

    Fourth Paragraph is the government talking again, with subliminal messages. "Come give me your everything, you are mine, I now own you, you have no rights because i took them away from you you have to do what I say or I'll kill you.

    Fifth is talking about how people came to America, the Land of Oppertunities for jobs... but now we are leaving because there are no more jobs. everyone is becoming lazy and not trying anymore, the ones that are trying are getting fucked and they can't get a job that will support their family because now the government owns everything and everyone.... What is this nation becoming, we listen to the president and the government like they are the way to life, our gods, our entities... and we will eventually collaps on ourselves if we dont do anything....




    Excuse any spelling errors, I'm not the best speller and it doesnt help that when I type it flashes from the middle to the bottom... weird. Well I hope this helps people to understand, sorry if you like obama, I just have my own personal oppinions about him
