Mama always said I'd end up this way
Stoned and hated in the U.S.A.
Drug fueled to keep the whole thing rolling, rolling, rolling.
Contempt for the status quo
Want to pirate on the radio
Take it over and drive it like it's stolen, stolen, stolen.

I'm not a waste
I'm not a waste
I'm in a war.
I'm not a waste
I'm not a waste
Motherfucker!

No time for ignorant youth
Punk is dead and that's the goddamn truth
Laugh it off but all the while I'm hated.
All in all it's not what it seems
Fuck you, I'm the American Dream.
Write it off while I keep you all sedated, dated, dated.

I'm not a waste
I'm not a waste
I'm in a war.
I'm not a waste
I'm not a waste.

Idle.
Idle American.
We're all safe again.

Fuck you, I'm the American Dream.
