lyrics

It started with a postcard of golden prairie sky
Pierogis in Saskatchewan, did you ever wonder why?
It's the land of opportunity you thought you knew so well
We were polyester amorous since we hit the Bible Belt

Cause America is dreaming, I'm trying to be polite
But it's the nightmare that is keeping us alive

Your auntie tells the story of how she got away
When the border guards found diamonds in her orange marmalade
She says it's not the first time, and you know it's not the last
If the sky is paved with gold here, then the ceiling's made of glass

Cause America is dreaming, I'm trying to be polite
But it's the nightmare that is keeping us alive

Oh you've gotten older
You are younger than you've ever been before
I know that spring will come soon
and I know we won't be leaving anymore

Cause America is dreaming, I'm trying to be polite
But it's the nightmare that is keeping us alive

America...America...America...
