Does being in debt feel just like a long lost friend?
Well just wait around, cause the desperation’s kicking in

Yeah, and it’s already starting to mix with
One of my best pieces of fiction…

And it’s called “I’ll be getting by, and I’ll make ends meet”
Does a 40 hour week have you bent at the knees?
And you can’t even see that everything’s kept just out of reach.

Ever get that funny feeling that your future’s not gonna be bought cheap?
And the “For Sale” sign that’s hanging on your neck might as well spell defeat

Yeah, and it’s already starting to mix with
One of my best pieces of fiction…

And it’s called “I’ll be getting by, and I’ll make ends meet”
Does a 40 hour week have you bent at the knees?
And you can’t even see that everything’s kept just out of reach.

My “American Dream” is to have it
A little bit better than my parents ever had it.
My “American Dream” is to have it
A little bit better than, it’s just a force of habit.
My “American Dream” is to have it
A little bit better than my parents ever had it.
