AMERICAN LIFE

"...I do Yoga and Pilates
And the room is full of hotties
So I’m checking out the bodies
And you know I’m satisfied..."

Do I have to change my name?

Will it get me far?

Should I lose some weight?

Am I gonna be a star?



I tried to be a boy,

I tried to be a girl

I tries to be a mess,

I tried to be the best

I guess I did it wrong.

That’s why I wrote this song

This type of modern life. Is it for me ?

This type of modern life. Is it for free ?



So, I went into a bar looking for sympathy

A little company. I tried to find a friend

It’s more easily said it’s always been the same

This type of modern life. Is not for me ?

This type of modern life. Is not for free ?



American life

I live the American dream

You are the best thing I’ve seen,

You are not just a dream



I tried to stay ahead, I tried to stay on top

I tried to play the part, but somehow I forgot

Just what I did it for and why I wanted more

This type of modern life. Is it for me ?

This type of modern life. Is it for free ?



Do I have to change my name?

Will it get me far?

Should I lose some weight?

Am I gonna be a star?



American life

I live the American dream

You are the best thing I’ve seen,

You are not just a dream



I tried to be a boy, I tried to be a girl

I tried to be a mess, I tried to be the best

I tried to find a friend, I tried to stay ahead

I tried to stay on top...



Do I have to change my name?

Will it get me far?

Should I lose some weight?

Am I gonna be a star?



F... it...

Yeah, F... it



I’m drinking a soy latte

I get a double shote

It goes right through my body

And you know I’m satisfied



I drive a mini cooper

And I’m feeling super-dooper

Yo they tell I’m a trooper

And you know I’m satisfied



I do Yoga and pilates

And the room is full of hotties

So I’m checking out the bodies

And you know I’m satisfied



I’m digging on the isotopes

This metaphysic’s shit is dope

And if all this can give me hope

You know I’m satisfied



I got a lawyer and a manager

An agent and a chef

Three nannies, an assistant

And a driver and a jet

A trainer and a butler

And a bodyguard or five

A gardner and a stylist

Do you think I’m satisfied



I’d like to express my extreme point of view

I’m not Christian and I’m not a Jew

I’m just living out the American dream

And I just realised that nothing

Is what it seems



Do I have to change my name

Am i gonna be a star

Do I have to change my name

Am I gonna be a star ?

Do I have to change my name



F... it...
