Restoring America's Dream (Rough vocal sketch)
Lyrics
Restoring America's Dream
2012 Sahlen, Starburst

Here's to our hardworking people
Striving and struggling through life
In spite of their great dedication
Still failing to shine in the light
Watching the rich power brokers
Scamming the system full steam
Using their wealth and connections;
Destroying America's dream

(chorus)
Let's form a new coalition
Demanding there's fair play for all
Setting a plan for redemption
Keeping our eyes on the ball
Let's build a better tomorrow
working with strength as a team
Toppling the bastions of privilege
Restoring America's dream

Here's to our strong men and women
With courage, conviction and might
Ready to join in the battle
With sharpened nerves and clear sight
No shadow of fear on their faces
Their steely eyed focus supreme
Working for one common purpose
Restoring America's dream

(chorus)
Let's form a new coalition
Demanding there's fair play for all
Setting a plan for redemption
Keeping our eyes on the ball
Let's build a better tomorrow
Working with strength as a team
Toppling the bastions of privilege
Restoring America's dream

(bridge)
Don't you think the one percent
Should stand up and pay their fair share?
We need a change to this system deranged
Its time that our system play fair

(chorus)
Let's form a new coalition
Demanding there's fair play for all
Setting a plan for redemption
Keeping our eyes on the ball
Let's build a better tomorrow
Working with strength as a team
Toppling the bastions of privilege
Restoring America's dream
