I wanted you to be my promised land
I was young and naive, dreamed of Jeannie
And thought I loved Lucy
But Lucy has gone and so has my dream

Sure it´s a wonderful life in the states
For the young who believe that the doughboy´s
A friend of Bill Gates
Strike it rich and be nailed by a fruitcake one day
I saw your beauty and I felt the flow
Sensed the power of glory and
Worshipped the 4th of July
Didn´t know what it means and how many have died

What will it be
Seize your final opportunity
For I can´t tell
So name your poison

I sealed my fate in the Monterey Bay
Got a lox bagel sandwich instead of
A handfull o´sushi
The waitress´ smile showed the juices within

I got a friend is as big as a whale
Leaving cracks in the pavement
And unable to read the scales
Munches fries, enchilladas and pork-chops all day

    General CommentThe meaning is obvious. You can do almost anything you want. But your going to feel the consequences of your actions in the end.

    General CommentI think this song is about realizing the American dream is a dangerous myth made up of destructive tendencies, poor health choices and wasteful consumerism.
