Songs when the truth are all dedicated to you
In this invisible world I choose to live in
And if you believe that now I understand
Why words mean so much to you, they'll never be about you

You maybe you're young without youth
Or maybe you're old without knowing anything's true
I think you're young without youth

Then you contract the American dream
You never look up once
You've contracted American dreams
I require you to stop and look up

Sing a song about myself
Keep singing the song about myself
Not some invisible world

Constantly searching to find something new
But what will you find when you think that nothing's true?
Maybe it's that nothing is new

So you let me hear songs that were written all about you
The good songs weren't written for you
They'll never be about you

Then you contract the American dream
You never look up once
You've contracted American dreams
You never look up once, so don't look up

Sing a song about myself
Keep singing the song about myself
Not some invisible world

Sing a song about myself
Keep singing a song about myself
Not some invisible world

And I won't tell you what this means
'Cause you'll already know
And I won't tell you what this means
'Cause you'll already know

So sing a song about myself
Keep singing the song about myself
Not some invisible world

And you came along and found the weak spot but you've always wanted
Let yourself be everything, that you've always wanted
It doesn't have to be so decided, as you've always wanted
And no need for explanations, you've always wanted

You'll find what you find when you find there's nothing
And you'll find what you find when you find there's nothing

Fairfoull, Bob / Newton, Colin / Pryce-Jones, Rod / Woomble, Roddy
