~VERSE~

B5When success is equated with excess
The ambition for excess wrecks us The top of the mind becomes the bottom line When success is equated with excess If your time ain't been nothing for money I start to feel really bad for your honey Maybe honey put your money where your mouth's been running If your time ain't been nothing but money ~PRE-CHORUS~
E5 F#5 G#5 A5I want out of this machine it doesn't feel like freedom
~CHORUS~
B5 E5 A5This ain't my American dream
B5 E5 A5I want to live and die for bigger things
C#5 F#5I'm tired of fighting for just me
B5This ain't my American dream
~INTERLUDE~ (B5) A5 B5 A5 B5 C#5 B5 A5 G#5 F#5 E5 B5 ~VERSE 2~
B5When success is equated with excess
When you're fighting for the Beamer the Lexus As the heart and soul breathe in the company goals Where success is equated with excess ~REPEAT PRE-CHORUS~ ~REPEAT CHORUS~ ~BRIDGE~
B5'Cause baby's always talkin' 'bout a ring
And talk has always been the cheapest thing Is it true would you do what I want you to
E5 B5If I show up with the right amount of bling
C#5 B5 A5 G#5 F#5 E5 B5Like a puppet on a monetary string
C#5 B5 A5 G#5 F#5 E5 C#5 F#5Maybe we've been caught singing red white blue and green
N.CBut that ain't my America
That ain't my American dream ~REPEAT CHORUS~ ~OUTRO~ B5 C#5 B5 A5 G#5 F#5 E5 B5
