American Dream Lyrics
By Switchfoot


Artist: Switchfoot
Album: Oh! Gravity
Date: 2006
Song: American Dream

_______________________________________________

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

If your time ainít been nothing for money
I start to feel really bad for you, honey
Maybe honey, put your money where your mouthís been running
If your time ainít been nothing but money

I want out of this machine
It doesnít feel like freedom

This ainít my American dream
I want to live and die for bigger things
Iím tired of fighting for just me
This ain't my American dream

When success is equated with excess
When weíre fighting for the Beamer, the Lexus
As the heart and soul breath in the company goals
Where success is equated with excess

ĎCause babyís always talkiní Ďbout 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 weíve been caught singing
Red, white, blue, and green
But that ainít my America,
That ainít my American dream
