My darling my dear
I tell you what is wrong
I went to the mountain
But the mountain top was gone

Remember those trees
Where as kids we dreamed
They tore em down years ago
And built a factory

And when that plant closed
The workers all left town
I read in the paper that
Some kids were killed
When it burnt down

Now I stare at that field
Like circle in the earth
And nothing'll grow now
That's not soil
It's just dirt

And I cant stand it
What's the use in making something new
If all that made us must be ruined

I cant demand it
I got nothing but
Mounting debt and fear
I scratch my head wondering
How we got here

America
American
What are we doing

America
I am American
Please can we start again

Darling my dear
I tell you what is right
The moon on the lake
And swimming by its light

Darling my dear
I tell you what is wrong
I went to the mountain
But the mountain top was gone

And I cant stand it
What's the use in making something new
If all that made us must be ruined

I cant demand shit
I got nothing
But mounting debt and fear
We scratch our heads
Wondering how we got here

America
Americans
What are we doing

America
I am American
Please can we start again

America
Americans
Think of your children

America
Americans
What th'hell are we doin'

And darlin' my dear
I tell you what is wrong
I went to the mountain
But the mountain top was gone
