[Chorus]
American life
I live the American dream
You are the best thing I’ve seen
You are not just a dream
[Verse 4]
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 tried to find a friend
I tried to stay ahead
I tried to stay on top
Fuck it
[Refrain]
Do I have to change my name? This type of modern life, is it for free? [Refrain]
Do I have to change my name? Will it get me far? Am I gonna be a star? Do I have to change my name? Will it get me far? This type of modern life, is it for free? Am I going to be a star? Should I lose some weight? Will it get me far? Am I gonna be a star? [Refrain]
Do I have to change my name? [Break]
Ah, fuck it
Ah, fuck it
Ah, fuck it
Ah, fuck it

[Verse 5]
I’m drinking a soy latte
I get a double shot-e
It goes right through my body, and you know I’m satisfied
I drive my mini cooper, and I’m feeling super-dooper
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 metaphysic’s 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? [Verse 1]
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
[Break]
This type of modern life, is it for me? Am I gonna be a star? Do I have to change my name? Am I gonna be a star? I’d like to express my extreme point of view
I’m not 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
[Outro]
Do I have to change my name? [Verse 2]
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

[Break]
This type of modern life, is not for me
This type of modern life, is not for free
[Chorus]
American life
I live the American dream
You are the best thing I’ve seen
You are not just a dream
[Verse 3]
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
[Break]
This type of modern life, is it for me? Should I lose some weight? Should I lose some weight?
