"The Amerikkkan Dream"

Living in society, full of critics
Judgmental? Might be
They're saying you got to live this way
to be accepted
Freedom disappeared
Living in hell with some exceptions
No time to plan your own dream
It's right here
All these misconceptions
Wanna live your way
Emotions built up, but kept in
You got to make them proud
Step up, and step in
Body images, money, education, and marriage
your all in
To them you'd really win
To yourself it's the worst blend
Trying to fit in with the world
Failing to realize its your dream
It's whatever you make it
America is a piece of land
Society is America's best friend.
