Open your world history compufiles to number nineteen hundred and ninety eight.
Today We're going to look back and bring to light once again,
The mistakes that were made which Caused the democracy
Once called America to fall from a great nation to total ruination.
A country spoiled to the point of no return

The Decline and Fall

It's time to reflect on the consequences of shortsightedness
And self defeating ideologies so
That we may learn from them, never to forget that history does indeed repeat itself.
There's a Big difference between assisting the truly needy
And throwing the taxpayers' money at
Problems with the noble hope that they'll disappear.
Earning more short term votes all the While.
Never once thinking about the
Big picture or the future of our children.
Selfish suicide, selfish suicide.


The United States of America taxed and legislated itself both on the
Federal and state levels into utter bankruptcy and eventual anarchy.
Anerica the beautifully forsaken.
Finished off in Exquisite catastrophe.
Like Egypt and Rome before it, the USA advanced its living conditions
To the point where total apathy consumed its hard working citizens and government
Assistance did nothing but enslave the downtrodden to the powers that were.
One nation under God, totally divisible.

Our Father

Our father who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us
And please, please lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from all evil
