American Life lyrics

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 tried 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
(American life)
I live the American dream
(American dream)
You are the best thing I've seen
You are 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 have to change my name
Will it get me far
Should I lose some weight
Am I gonna be a star

American life
(American life)
I live the American dream
(American dream)
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream
(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, f*ck it

Do I have to change my name?
Will it get me far?
Should I lose some weight?
Am I gonna be a star?

Oh, f*ck it, oh, f*ck it
Oh, f*ck it, oh, f*ck it

I'm drinking a soy latte, I get a double shot
It goes right through my body and you know I'm satisfied
I drive my mini cooper and I'm feeling super-duper
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 metaphysics 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 gardener and a stylist, do you think I'm satisfied

I'd like to express my extreme point of view
I'm not a Christian and I'm not a Jew
I'm just living out the American dream
And I just realized that nothing is what it seems

Do I have to change my name?
(Oh, American life)
Am I gonna be a star?
(I lived the American dream)

Do I have to change my name?
(Oh, American life)
Am I gonna be a star?
(I lived the American dream)
Do I have to change my name?

Oh, American life
I lived the American dream
Oh, American life
I lived the American dream

Oh, American life
I lived the American dream
Oh, American life
