Thom Pace - America Plays

devider

Well I guess he's gonna go down dancin'
Down inside the corner bar
He's gonna find a lady who'll find out later
That she likes his brand new car

Just tell him that you like his money
And he'll show you a tremendous time!
You'll ride his Lamborghini to his mansion in the country
Stoppin' only for the drugs and wine

Livin' the night life
And makin' the company pay
You know that it's not right, but we'll do it all night
And that's the way America plays!

He said he finally found the answer
In his office on an afternoon
They'd never catch him takin' all the money they were makin'
'Till they found out he was in Cancun livin' the good life
And makin' the company pay.
You know that it's not right, but we'll do it all night
And that's the way America plays!

And can't you hear the soft cry of destruction?
It's callin' out strong in the American night!
It pleads with us to try to find a way to live our lives
And not the lives of all those souls around us!

But on the day that Jesus saved him
He told him there's no time to lose
We'll identify those sinners and we'll tell 'em they'll be winners
If they just give up their right to choose
So she had her baby boy in secret
Cause he told her that abortion's wrong
But she ended up deciding that she couldn't take the crying
So she drowned him in the backyard pond!

Livin' the lost life and makin' society pay!
You know that it's not right, but we'll do it all night
And that's the way America plays!
Ah I don't wanna play the way America plays!
