American Dream

Tell me what my friends now mean
When they say “the American dream”
Is a set life, a set schedule,
Having to follow every rule
From here to San Fransico
Everywhere you could possibly go
You can only do a few things
That’s not the American dream

The American dream is supposed to bring hope
Not tether us down with laws as a rope
Not tell us what we can and can’t do
Aren’t we supposed to be free?
This doesn’t seem like freedom to me…
This is not the American dream.
