Lyrics
Promised Land copyright 2012
My buddy just got fired, rent 3 months overdue
Thankful I'm still working, but barely getting through
People's dreams are shrinking, fear is in the air
Creditors keep calling, but ain't no cash to spare

Chorus
Hit a patch of rough sledding, even more where we're heading
Broke and bitter, need a change of plans
Every dime we're making, Uncle Sam keeps taking
Feel a day of reckoning at hand, it's time for us to save this promised land

Little towns are suffering, struggle to survive,
Families are hurting, while politicians thrive
They run a tab that's bigger, than's ever been before
Truth and common sense ain't very common anymore

Chorus
Refrain
Say they got the answers, and promises are made
But it's all smoke and mirrors, I'm tired of being played

Solo (G - D - Em - C)

The future of our children is hanging by a thread
Wasting years and money, blood still being shed
Hearing lots of speeches, but nothing's getting done
Had enough of talking, the rising has begun

Chorus-
