I Am Nation - The American Dream lyrics

rate me

<b>The American Dream</b> by <i>I Am Nation</i><br />Perfection is an ugly sight

I'll never wish for only blue skies

Or pretty white clouds to drift on by

Tell me why do we lie

I never want a clean-- cut green lawn

With a perfect picket fence to walk along

Painted with-- thick white paste

Without a trace-- of specific taste


Society has brainwashed me

To believe we'll never achieve our dreams

We used to call it

I thought we were through with kings and queens

But you're going nowhere without a team

Oh yeah we used to call it the american dream

Why wake up to singing birds

When others want a chance to be heard?

If I was a fox, the rooster would know it's place

By dawn, feathers'd hold my gaze

Cookie cutter houses lined upon my street

Forming gridlines inhumanely neat

Wheres my house

They're all the same

This is such a stupid game



The sun will shine on sundays

Flowers bloom in may

Birds and bees glide happily

But heres the reality

Someone lives in poverty

As one lives in wealth

Someone gains a victory

One loses health

The ashes of foundation

Lay all scattered about

While we're all left so empty

As we struggle to figure out

American Dream

American Dream
