He sees his life just passing by
Just another number in a suit and tie
No purpose here nothing to give
Is this what it means to really live?

His feet never touch the ground
His days fly by, he can’t slow down

Casualties of the American dream
Have we lost our vision
Drifting off and living
Half asleep with a faint heartbeat
Just dying to be revived
I want to be revived

She’s screaming out, “I’ve lost control”
Caught in another undertow
She’s only barely hanging on
Been holding her breath for so long
Her feet never touch the ground
She’s not sure which way is up or down

Casualties of the American dream
Have we lost our vision
Drifting off and living
Half asleep with a faint heartbeat
Just dying to be revived
I want to be revived

I want to be revived
I want to feel alive
And in a world so numb
Don’t let me become another
Casualty living in this dream

Casualties of the American dream
Have we lost our vision
Drifting off and living
Half asleep with a faint heartbeat
Just dying to be revived
I want to be revived
