I don't want to go to work
I don't want to get a job
I don't want to have to borrow
I don't want to have to rob
I just want to get away
And I don't want to look back
I want to get off the train on the American Track

When I was young I moved around
I saw smiles and I saw frowns
I met a man I thought I loved
And then he let me down
So I learned I shouldn't care
I got tough and I wore black
And I jumped off the train on the American Track

I saw white and I saw black
I saw the police Attack
I saw people going hungry
While the government got fat
I don't like to complain
No I don't want to be like that
But you can only take so much on the American Track

I don't want to got to work
I don't want to get a job
I don't want to have to borrow
I don't want to have to rob
You could spend a hundred years
And you could never get them back
And they'll haunt you everyday on the American Track.
