American Dreamer

 

I came to this town with a lion’s heart and a big fat beggar’s mouth; didn’t have a refinery just lettin’ people tell me I would become whatever they said I would be. I don’t think I should be compared to anyone else. If you knew all of my reasons then I wouldn’t have a story to tell. I could follow those around me, I could go a separate way, I could wallow in the sorrow, I could try to have a good day. I could build a revolution of honesty with no shame and choose only the colors that I know would never fade. I could dream about tomorrow, I could try to change the past, but this American dreamer doesn’t wanna come in last. I came to this world with extra sour mash and a little wooden bowl that was filled up with grass. Now, I can’t even find the time to wiggle around in my own damn home because I’m on the internet, the world wide web, yeah it’s getting better but we are becoming socially inept. I don’t think we should be hatin’ on anyone else, if you knew all of their reasons then you wouldn’t have a story to sell. I could follow those around me, I could go a separate way, I could wallow in the sorrow, I could try to have a good day. I could build a revolution of honesty with no shame and choose only the colors that I know would never fade. I could dream about tomorrow, I could try to change the past, but this American dreamer doesn’t wanna come in last. When the world has gone away and the days are numbered to the end – a new life can be begin.  Ten years passed, all that’s lasted is the memory inside of us all. The hallways have cleared, generation “us” is here. We have gone our separate ways, but you follow those around you, you go a separate way, you wallow in the sorrow, you try to have a good day. You build a revolution of honesty with no shame and choose only the colors that you know would never fade, and you dream about tomorrow, you try to change the past, but this American Dreamer doesn’t wanna come in last.
