"America" as written by Sarah Bettens and Gert Bettens....
Where freedom is no myth
Where you hold on to it
An eagle in a cage
That gets on with it's life
And somehow will survive
And it will rise and fall
Not unlike the sun

America

You worked hard to get on top
And there's nothing here to stop you
You show it on T.V.
Where everyone looks tall
A prom queen in the mall
How she'd kill to get it all
Don't we all?

America

Are you hated everywhere?
Do you know and do you care?
Well, I know you're getting there
The hope you have is real
The hope I hope to feel
One day we will share it all
And dive into the waterfall

America

The hope you have is real
The hope I hope to feel
One day we will share it all
And dive into the waterfall

America
(Take that capitalism!)
