When success is equated with excess
The ambition for excess wrecks us
As the top of the mind becomes the bottom line
When success is equated with excess

If your time ain't be nothing but money
I start to feel really bad for you, honey
Maybe honey, put youre money
Where your mouths been running
If your time ain't be nothing but money

I want out of this machine
It doesnt feel like freedom

This aint my American dream
I wanna live and die for bigger things
Im tired of fighting for just me
This ain't my American dream

When success is equated with excess
When youre fighting for the Beamer, the Lexus
As the heart and soul breathing the company goals
Where success is equated with excess

I want out of this machine
It doesnt feel like freedom

This aint my American dream
I wanna live and die for bigger things
Im tired of fighting for just me
This ain't my American dream

'Cause babys always talking bout a ring
And talk has always been the cheapest thing
Is it true, would you do what I want you to
If I show up with the right amount of bling?

Like a puppet on a monetary string
Maybe weve been caught singing
Red, white, blue and green
But that aint my America
That aint my American dream

This aint my American dream
I wanna live and die for bigger things
Im tired of fighting for just me
This ain't my American dream
