There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
An' the bankers are takin' my home an' my land from me
There's a big achin' hole in my chest now where my heart was
An' a hole in the sky where god used to be.

There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
There's a well with water so bitter nobody can drink
Ain't no way to get high an' my mouth is so dry that i can't speak
Don't they know that i'm dyin', why nobody cryin' for me?

My american dream fell apart at the seams
You tell me what it means
You tell me what it means.

There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
The bankers are takin' my home an' my land away
There's a young boy closin' his eyes tonight in the heartland
Who will wake up a man with a home an' a loan he can't pay.

His american dream fell apart at the seams
You tell me what it means
You tell me what it means.
My american dream fell apart at the seams
You tell me what it means
You tell me what it means.

There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland.
