Pre-Order the full length from Wiretap Records [dot] com, NOW!


I’m drained on the American dream
Even though we’re taught it’s equal
That’s not the way it seems
All the racist rhetoric
And the blatant classist lies
Magnify the great divide

Keep doing as we’re told
Their lies are getting old
We read between the lines
In the great divide

She’s sick in a hospital bed
She had to pay the bus fare
So she stopped her medicine
Now she works a second job
Just to pay the doctors off
When she looks at her scars
Man, it crushes her heart
