lyrics

Baby, this world keeps breaking my heart
If I didn’t have you, I swear it’d tear me apart
There ain’t enough money, there ain’t enough time
I’m either dragging all my dread around or scraping up dimes

The future ain’t what it used to be
I’m not even sure it was originally
We can’t afford to live in the land of the free
The future ain’t what it used to be

Anyone can make it in the USA
All you have to do is just struggle and pray
Taught how to smile, but never taught to weep
You shouldn’t make a promise that you can’t keep

The future ain’t what it used to be
I’m not even sure it was originally
We can’t afford to live in the land of the free
The future ain’t what it used to be

Jesus was a CEO
Now he’s got a TV show
Sure he’s got a lot of dough
Got it fair and square, though
Didn’t lie, didn’t cheat
Other folks just can’t compete
Saw you sleeping on the street
Why’d you think I’m packing heat?

The future ain’t what it used to be
I’m not even sure it was originally
We can’t afford to live in the land of the free
The future ain’t what it used to be
