about

The American reality: The top 10% possess 80% of all wealth, the bottom 90% only 20%. 13 to 17% of the population is living below the federal poverty line at any given point in time. That’s around 40 million people, and roughly 40% fall below the poverty line at some point within a 10-year time span. The upper class lives longer. The proportion of upper class students at elite schools is increasing. Social classes tend to reproduce themselves. Between 40 and 60% of parents’ income advantage is passed on to their children. There are barriers to the channels for upward mobility. The United States is one of only a few developed countries where inequality has increased since 1980.

lyrics

The American Dream
the american dream, the american scheme
us of a, the land of opportunity
the american dream, the american scheme
from rags to riches, education and jobs for all

the american dream, the american scheme, anyone can become rich
the american dream, the american scheme, anyone can become powerful

the american, the american, the american dream x2

the american dream, the american scheme
skill and effort determines your place
the american dream, the american scheme
through hard work you can achieve prosperity

the american dream, the american scheme, anyone can become rich
the american dream, the american scheme, anyone can become powerful

the american, the american, the american dream x2

the american dream x4
