Verse 1:
What will you do when the money's gone cold?
What will you do when there's nothing left?
Oo the nation's falling
and you hold it against yourself

What will you do if it doesn't work out?
Foxy money for a rainy day fund
Oo better get a real job
Before you're on the run

You’ve got the call, call, call
You’ve got the call, call, call

Where do we go from here?
Who survives as a New American?
Another dead career
Who survives as a New American?

How do we shake the fear?
Who survives as a New American?
It’s gonna be our year
To survive as a New American

Verse 2:
Should you put a price on dreams?
Would you if you were alone?
Oo the expectations
From others and your own

And what if you take another way out?
Will it fund your happiness too?
Oo when your door closes
How will they think of you?
