I was just a boy when they told me What you gonna be and they sold me The American Dream for a small fee The price of my life and my own dreams What about a dream where the Kingdom comes Peace on the earth and his will be done What about a dream where the people fight Not for fortune and fame but for saving lives She'll consume your future if you just let her be Hold the world a hostage From sea to shining sea You can call her freedom, but she can't set you free And don't you dare disgrace her She's our American dream American dream, I was never told that the high life Would demand my soul such a high price I've been drinking the Kool-Aid the whole time Believing the dream till it stole mine What about a dream where the people cry For the healing of a land both soul and mind What about a dream where the dream was changed Not for change sake but for the highest gain They say cash rules everything around me it seems For thirty pieces of silver you can buy you a king And forfeit your soul become a slave to the machine Some would sell they're own momma for the American pipe dream Redemption disregarded to the good news imparted Exempt from consequence spiritual free-dumb to free-tarded Morally decayed selfish in my ways I live to get paid I'm so American made American Dream (America the American Dream) American Dream (America my American Dream) American Dream (America the American Dream) American Dream (What does it cost for my American Dream) Program me then program the future Program schools and program the teachers Program youth then program the future Then program me to think I can lose her Trap me hold me mind and my body Teach my feet to walk like Zombie Consume my life with the dollar sign Till I pledge my allegiance to lose my mind
