LyricsEdit

    Rise so high, yet so far to fall
    A plan of dignity and balance for all
    Political breakthrough, euphoria's high
    More borrowed money, more borrowed time
    Backed in a corner, caught up in the race
    Means to an end, ended in disgrace
    Perspective is lost in the spirit of the chase
    
    Foreclosure of a dream
    Those visions never seen
    Until all is lost, personal Holocaust
    Foreclosure of a dream
    
    Barren land that once filled a need
    Are worthless now, dead without a deed
    Slipping away from an iron grip
    Nature's scales are forced to tip
    The heartland dies, loss of all pride
    To leave ain't believing, so try and be tried
    Insufficient funds, insanity and suicide
    
    Foreclosure of a dream
    Those visions never seen
    Until all is lost, personal Holocaust
    Foreclosure of a dream
    
    "The congress will push me to raise taxes and I'll say
    'No, read my lips, read my lips, read my lips' "
    
    Now with new hope, some will be proud
    This is no hoax, no one pushed out
    Receive a reprieve and be a pioneer
    Break new ground of a new frontier
    New ideas will surely get by
    No deed, or dividend. Some may ask "Why?"
    You'll find the solution, the answers in the sky
    
    Rise so high, yet so far to fall
    A plan of dignity and balance for all
    Political breakthrough, euphoria's high
    More borrowed money, more borrowed time
    
    Foreclosure of a dream
    Those visions never seen
    Until all is lost, personal Holocaust
    Foreclosure of a dream
