America Dreaming

too too much dreaming on things you earned

too little doings things you need to preserve

asleep as the world goes by

asleep as the world goes by

a giant, a giant sleeps tonight

dreams of smiles

dreams of open arms

dreams that all can be had

dreams of treasure

dreams of a high peak

asleep as the world goes by

asleep as the world goes by

outside your window

the smoke stacks bellows

the aimless children struggle

the cars choke

your power says and wanes

others pilfer your treasure

awake awake awake
