This American dream is
not what it seems.
Maybe we’re still breathing
but we’re all asleep

Cause I wanna live
Until I die
Don’t let devil bury me alive
When my heart stops let me go home,
Don’t let the suburbs kill my heart and soul
My heart and soul

Pretty cars and pretty houses
Pretty people on parade
If this dream is what you’re after
Then dreamin’ is where you’ll stay

Cause I wanna live,
Until I die
Don’t let devil bury me alive.
When my heart stops
Let me go home,
Don’t let the suburbs kill my heart and soul
My heart and soul

Are we just runnin’ in the dark or livin’
Are we just runnin in the dark or livin’

Cause I wanna live,
Until I die
Don’t let the Devil bury me alive.
When my heart stops,
Let me go home
Don’t let the suburbs…

Oh I wanna live
Until I die
Don’t let the Devil bury me alive
When my heart stops,
Let me go Home,
Don’t let the suburbs kill my heart and soul
Kill my heart and soul
My heart and soul

    General CommentThis song is so amazing!!! It is basically a prayer to God asking Him to help us not get attached to the material things of this world. The song is saying that life in the suburbs (the American dream/material things) are not what is important. What is important is our faith in Jesus Christ and in that end "when my heart stops" that is all that really matters.
