Welcome to this Golden age, kick your smack and turn the page
And why can't little Johnny read?
Someone stole his face again

American Boy -- life is not the same
American Boy -- nothing's ever real
American Boy -- looking through the glass
American Boy -- How does it feel? How does it feel?

Come out from your hiding place and paint yourself a brave new face
Tell us what would make you awe-inspired.
You ask yourself, "What does it mean? The needle, the bottle, the nicotine."
You need another way to face the mirror.

American Boy -- overcome the pain
American Boy -- nothing's ever real
American Boy -- celebrate the day
American Boy -- How does it feel? How does it feel?

Welcome to this Golden age, tell us how you slept today
...and why can't little Johnny dream?
cuz now we need him wide awake.

How does it feel? American Boy
