Goodbye Corporate America. It’s been… well, it’s been.

I’ll leave you with two songs.

Pink Houses” by John Cougar Mellencamp

There’s a black man with a black cat livin’ in a black neighborhood
He’s got an interstate runnin’ through his front yard
You know he thinks that he’s got it so good
And there’s a woman in the kitchen cleanin’ up the evenin’ slop
And he looks at her and says, “Hey darlin’, I can remember when
you could stop a clock.”

Oh but ain’t that America for you and me
Ain’t that America somethin’ to see baby
Ain’t that America home of the free
Little pink houses for you and me

There’s a young man in a t-shirt
Listenin’ to a rockin’ rollin’ station
He’s got greasy hair, greasy smile
He says, “Lord this must be my destination.”
‘Cause they told me when I was younger
“Boy you’re gonna be president.”
But just like everything else those old crazy dreams
Just kinda came and went

Oh but ain’t that America…

Well there’s people and more people
What do they know know know
Go to work in some high rise
And vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico
Ooh yeah
And ther’s winners and there’s losers
But they ain’t no big deal
‘Cause the simple man baby pays for the thrills, the bills,
the pills that kill

Oh but ain’t that America…

Little Black Train” by Woodie Guthrie, as sung by Freakwater

There’s a little black train that’s coming, coming down the track
You gotta ride that little black train
And it ain’t gonna bring you back

You may be a barroom gambler, cheat your way through life
You can’t cheat that little black train
Or beat this final ride

You silken barroom ladies, dressed in your worldly pride
You gotta ride that little black train
And it’s coming in tonight

Your million dollar fortune, mansion glittering white
You can’t take it with you
When the train rolls in to- night

Get ready for your savior, fix your business right
You gotta ride that little black train
That’s coming in to- night

There’s a little black train that’s coming, coming down the track
You gotta ride that little black train
And it ain’t gonna bring you back
