So many people try to wear a façade
Everyday it goes on it gets harder
To tell the truth from a lie
I don't understand just why

Everybody feels the need to give it away
Before they see another way they give it away
Before they try to be their own selves
They're being like everybody else

Everybody's trying to capitalize
What's in it for me they plea
After all nothing you get is free
Everybody's trying to maximize
Blinded by the dollar signs

They refuse to see that they gave it away
Before they saw another way they gave it away
Before they tried to be their own selves
They're being like everybody else

And I don't understand just why
We've got to perpetuate the lie
And keep on keep on going
There's one thing I know inside
I've got to keep my soul alive
And keep on keep on growing
And it's never too late for that

(Lead Break)

Everybody's wondering what went wrong
Did it all by the book
yet there seems to be an empty look
Everybody's wondering why they're sad
Could it be American dreams

Only exist on the TV screens that they pray
To every night they worship their lives away
Every night they get in their TVs and pray
Never believe anything that I say
Before they tried to be their own selves
They're being like everybody else
