American Dream Lyrics
When success is equated with excess
The ambition for excess wrecks us
As the top of the mind becomes the bottom line
When success is equated with excess

If your time ain't be nothing but money
I start to feel really bad for you, honey
Maybe honey, put you're money
Where your mouth's been running
If your time ain't be nothing but money

I want out of this machine
It doesn't feel like freedom

This ain't my American dream
I wanna live and die for bigger things
I'm tired of fighting for just me
This ain't my American dream

When success is equated with excess
When you're fighting for the Beamer, the Lexus
As the heart and soul breathing the company goals
Where success is equated with excess

I want out of this machine
It doesn't feel like freedom

This ain't my American dream
I wanna live and die for bigger things
I'm tired of fighting for just me
This ain't my American dream

'Cause baby's always talking â€~bout a ring
And talk has always been the cheapest thing
Is it true, would you do what I want you to
If I show up with the right amount of bling?

Like a puppet on a monetary string
Maybe we've been caught singing
Red, white, blue and green
But that ain't my America
That ain't my American dream

This ain't my American dream
I wanna live and die for bigger things
I'm tired of fighting for just me
This ain't my American dream
