Papa Roach – American Dreams


By American Dreams
[Pre-Chorus]
Something’s wrong here

A soldier bleeds, and a soldier dies
When you’re buried alive

Reunited by the truth at the right time
By American Dreams
[Verse 2]
Something’s wrong here
[Chorus]
So give me the truth
We’re trying to keep ourselves alive
Cause I’m not sleeping in
Another family that’s struggling to keep sane
[Chorus]

[Verse 1]
So give me the truth
Or so it seems
We’re trying to see through the smoke in our eyes
[Pre-Chorus]
I’m a son of it, fucked up from it
And I’m growing numb to the violence
Got us all wearing black every Sunday
Sing along to the sounds of the sirens
Cause I’m not sleeping in

American Dreams, American lies
When you’re buried alive
Don’t tell me your lies
Cause it’s harder to breathe
Have you ever thought that war was a sickness
Don’t tell me your lies
American Dreams, American lies
When you’re buried alive
Cause it’s harder to breathe

Cause their neighborhood, ain’t a safe place
Cause I’m not sleeping in
Don’t tell me your lies
It feels like, American Dreams caught on fire
Casualty of my family ‘cause of it
We dare to dream, or live to die
With every bullet hole, there’s a blood stain
Cause it’s harder to breathe
But it’s hard to get by when it feels like
We’re trying to see through the smoke in our eyes
We’re trying to see through the smoke in our eyes
So give me the truth
Or so it seems
[Bridge]
[Chorus]
By American Dreams
American Dreams, American lies
We’re tearing down the white picket fences
