A National Anthem

Standing amongst others with hand over heart,

Standing amongst others with hand over heart, Surrounded by voices flat and sharp;

Perfect disharmony

Perfect disharmony for an imperfect country

Yet our flag still waves

Yet our flag still waves O’er the home of the slave

Imprisoned by our own conditioning

Imprisoned by our own conditioning Of living a life of repeated routine

Working long hours

Working long hours, awaiting a short weekend

Working long hours, awaiting a short weekend Where unfulfilled dreams

Working long hours, awaiting a short weekend Where unfulfilled dreams are ultimately weakened

Buried under mounds of material excess

With banks loaning more debt

Blinded by a false sense of reality

Blinded by a false sense of reality We've confused life with our current experience

Blinded by a false sense of reality We've confused life with our current experience To be happy in this world

Blinded by a false sense of reality We've confused life with our current experience To be happy in this world would lack any real sense

Sit or stand for our National Anthem

Sit or stand for our National Anthem It really doesn’t matter

Sit or stand for our National Anthem It really doesn’t matter When still living for the system

Can you truly say you live your life for you?

Which is the real American Dream

Though, very few live it true.

*if you live life with a false sense of optimism, believing the narratives we are told through media outlets, you are existing within the system; living your life in service of it, instead of living life for yourself and what you love. Unplug yourself from the system.
