I wrote this song while thinking about the horrible situation America is in financially, and how my generation is going to be left with the responsibility of cleaning up the mess left behind by selfish, narcissistic politicians who have forgotten why they were elected in the first place.
I hope you guys like it.

I took a walk out through the land of "opportunity"
and the only thing to see
was the dead and desecrated pieces
of the way things used to be

I don't know where to go
this war lost long ago

I can't fight another day
this world has broken me down
My legs are shakin, and my arms are so tired
from swinging this ball and chain around

they say that the sins of the father
will be borne by the sons
every day I curse the ones who make me
live my life under the gun

there's nowhere left to go
my war lost long ago


I don't want it to end this way
I just want what's best for me
But this life, it ain't so easy
and nothin' in this world is free

(Guitar Solo)

I have nowhere to go
my war lost long ago
