American Dream (Lyrics)

Updated: Apr 7, 2019

I've been working for my bread & wine

Head down don't fall behind

A lifetime bought & sold

Make your money off the work I do

Call me when rent's past due

A lifetime bought & sold

Poison water where my children drink

Then horde the medicine they need

A lifetime bought & sold

Grandma said work hard then watch & see

Live your American Dream

It's all been bought & sold


Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh


Been dying to feel

When the reaper comes I'll be screaming with laughter

One hand at the wheel

Hug the corners whatever gets me there faster

I've been wretched I was wrong

Left you there with nothing on

At least we got the room with the view

Lights gone dim but I'll survive

You tried to cut me down to size

They ain't nobody lower than you

Sweet illusion swept away

Here I'm standing just the same

A betting man will make his fortune on me.


Oh...... does it never end?


I've been wretched I was wrong

Left you there with nothing on

At least we got the room with the view

Lights gone dim but I'll survive

You tried to cut me down to size

They ain't nobody lower than you

Sweet illusion swept away

Here I'm standing just the same

A betting woman indeed.


You better believe the forest for the trees

Step back, now do you hear the sound?

Beat to dust

Shaping lifetimes into dollar signs

Subverting who we are

At any cost

Keep believing angels will raise us from the grave

Paradise Lost

All but just one tree

Then we toppled that one too


Oh....


I've been working for my bread & wine

Head down don't fall behind

A lifetime bought & sold

Grandma said work hard then watch & see

Live your American Dream

It's all been bought and....
