american life lyrics lyrics – academia, la

american life

do i´ve to change my name?
will it get me far?
should i lose some weight?
am i going to be a star?

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 guess i did it wrong
that is 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 is more easily said
it is always been the same
this type of modern life
isn´t for me
this type of modern life
isn´t for free

chorus:

american life [american life]
i live the american dream [american dream]
you´re the best thing i have seen
you´re not just a dream [american life]

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´ve to change my name?
will it get me far?
should i lose some weight?
am i going to be a star?

(chorus)

american life

i tried to be a boy
tried to be a girl
tried to be a mess
tried to be the best
tried to find a friend
tried to stay ahead
i tried to stay on top

(spoken:)
f*ck it

do i´ve to change my name?
will it get me far?
should i lose some weight?
am i going to be a star?

uh, uh, uh, uh

(spoken:)
f*ck it

(spoken:)
i am drinkin´ a soy latte
i get a double shoté
it goes right through my body
and you know i am satisfied
i drive my mini cooper
and i am feeling super-duper
yo they tell me i am a trooper
and you know i am satisfied
i do yoga & pilates
and the room is full of hotties
so i am checking out their bodies
and you know i am satisfied
i am diggin´ on the isotope
this metaphysics sh*t´s dope
and if all this can give me hope
you know i am satisfied
i got a lawyer & a manager
an agent & a chef
three nannies, an *ssistant
and a driver & a jet
a trainer & a butler
and a bodyguard or five
a gardener & a stylist
do you think i am satisfied?

i would like to express my extreme point-of-view
i am not a christian & i am not a jew
i am just living out the american dream
and i just realized that nothing´s what it seems

do i´ve to change my name?
am i going to be a star?
do i´ve to change my name?
