Track Name: American Dream
How long will I be gone?
Or am I already dead?
The alarm clock's ringing but I can't leave my bed
She's got a brand new job, a home with her best friend
While I'm still singing the songs I wrote when I was him
Most days I sit alone in the house our families built
The bills pile up but I don't seem to fret
Sincere apology to the girl who needed me
I didn't learn to love until I had it taken from me

But you were my American dream; all the things I couldn't be
Some hopeless hollow version of me
Where nothing's as it seems
I've got the fancy car
I've got the house and the yard
I've got the drugs that make me who you want

Don't lay it on so thick
I know you're doing well
It ain't hard to move on when you've already had your fill
of the nights I made you scream
Or wondering who you'd be
If you'd just admit that the vows we took didn't mean a thing

But you were my American dream; all the things I couldn't be
Some hopeless hollow version of me
Where nothing's as it seems
I've got the fancy car
I've got the house and the yard
I've got the drugs that make me who you want
